The holiday shopping season is upon us! We’ve got a few ways to easily support MVLS and our member libraries while you shop.
AmazonSmile – AmazonSmile offers the same products, same prices, and same free shipping terms that you’ll find on Amazon.com, but by shopping through our AmazonSmile link, MVLS will receive a percentage of all eligible purchases. There’s a link to our AmazonSmile page on our website (http://www.mvls.info, under Support MVLS, on the right hand side).
Overdrive WIN – The WIN (Want It Now) program from Overdrive allows readers who purchase ebooks and other eligible digital content from participating retailers to support our eContent collection. For each eligible purchase, MVLS receives a percentage as credit towards purchases in our Overdrive collection. The program includes popular retailers such as Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Powell’s Books. There’s a link to the WIN program on our website (also under Support MVLS on the right hand side of the page), and a link on our Overdrive site under the New eBooks on the front page (http://mvls.lib.overdrive.com). Clicking the Buy It Now button under any eContent title in our Overdrive collection will also give us credit from your purchase.
Support Local Libraries Directly – The gift for that person who has everything? How about a donation to the library in their honor? And watch for special events happening in our libraries (like the Holiday Fair at the Canajoharie Library, The Victorian Christmas Tea at the Best House in Middleburgh, the fabulous holiday basket raffle at the Northville Library, or the Black Friday book sale at the Whitney Book Corner, run by the Friends of Schenectady County Public Library). Be sure to follow MVLS on Facebook to keep up on all the exciting things happening in our libraries.
Happy holidays everyone!
