Text & Donate to the Brooklyn Library

For the  “Support Our Shelves” campaign, the Brooklyn Public Library will be accepting  tax-deductible donations via text messages.

All you have to do is text the word “books” to 50555, and the library will receive a $10 donation, which will show up on your next cellphone bill. The Brooklyn Public Library is the first library system to adopt this method for donations.

“It should make a difference on two fronts,” said Jason Carey, a library spokesman told the Brooklyn Paper. “It’s a new way to get people involved who might not have gotten involved before. Plus, it allows us to keep communicating with people if they opt in.”
