Help the Charleston County Public Library – Donate Your CDs, DVDs, LPs and Videogames

Well – it seems one of my favorite places needs help. I know I’ve got some CD’s and a few DVD’s I wonder why I ever purchased to begin with that I could donate. I’m not going to name names – to protect me. But, here’s an opportunity to get them out of my collection and spare me the embarrassment the next time someone is looking to see what I have and then it happens – they pull one of those mistakes out and give me that look. Oh man, it’s a look I don’t want to see again.

So, I guess I’ll be going through and doing some sorting. The Library will get some cash for my mistakes and I’ll have that warm fuzzy feeling. Like they say – one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. And, I’ll be clearing some space for some new – better – music and movies. You’ve just got till Apr. 15, 2010 so don’t delay.

Here’s the pitch:

The Charleston Friends of the Library, in Charleston, SC, is holding a special Media Donation Drive to help raise money to support the Charleston County Public Library (CCPL). Now through Apr. 15, 2010 (tax day), donate your gently-used CDs, DVDs, LPs and videogames to any of the 16 public library locations in Charleston County.

With neighboring libraries like the Public Library of Charlotte-Mecklenburg County in North Carolina announcing the closing of half its branches and the recent announcement of reduced library hours at CCPL starting April 1st, the Friends of the Library is looking to raise money in new and innovative ways like online sales, in addition to the popular book sales held throughout the year.

The Charleston Friends of the Library, a non-profit volunteer organization, raises money through book sales and membership to help fund over 4,000 Library programs each year that are free to the community. The Friends of the Library is partnering with AbundaTrade.com (formerly Millennium Music) and CCPL for this special donation drive.

The Friends of the Library accepts donation of books and media all year long, but needs your help now. Your donation is tax-deductible and supports your local Library.

If you would like to become a member of the Charleston Friends of the Library, or for more information on the Media Donation Drive, please visit (www.CharlestonLibraryFriends.org).
