BIKING FOR BOOKS

$3,906 of $3,000 goal

Raised by 59 people in 9 months
Help bring books to Eleanor, Irene and Joan.  The Emily Williston Memorial Library in Easthampton is a small library that wishes to have a large reach.  I work for the Easthampton library and I want to deliver books to the members of our community who are unable to easily leave their home to browse for books.   With an electric bike pulling a trailer we could take books to community events and neighborhoods.  I could reach out to people who are home bound or don't have easy access to transportation.  We are already part way to our goal, but we need $ 3,000 to make this Book Bike Service happen.  I am going to ride my bike across country to help raise that money.  That's right, sixty year old library clerk (me) is riding from San Diego, California to Gulf Shores, Alabama to raise money for this service.  When I return, riding the electric bike to make deliveries should be a breeze.  So GoFundMe

$1 a mile would earn $2,487.00  okay, that's a lot
$0.10 a mile would earn  $248.70  still a lot
$0.01 a mile would be only $24.80
No need to donate by the mile, give $5 or $10 and follow my trip on Facebook starting from San Diego on September 15th.

Hi everyone. Sorry I've been out of touch. I've been posting on my event page which you can find on the Emily Williston Library. I've made it to Socorro, Texas and I am still going. If you haven't already, please donate.

My bike is on its way to San Diego. I am a little jealous. I am also concerned with my anthropomorphic tendencies.
