Success Stories

  • Libraries Matter - Check out their inspiring success stories and their successful wristband sales program.

Fundraising Tips

  • Check out IN MY BOOK ®, a unique combination of greeting card and bookmark in one. For resale by FOL groups, at booksales, at the library shop or at the circulation desk, these bookmark/cards make a great little fundraiser, and offer a bit of a change from all those tee-shirts, mugs and bookbags! Buy wholesale for $2.00 per card, sell them for $3.95, and enjoy the profits. Please visit : our libraries and FOLs page.

Here's another nice fundraising idea... Light up roses!
