The holiday season is fast approaching! If Santa will be using Amazon instead of elves, be sure he’s using AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your library every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to Eastern Shore Public Library Foundation.
To set up your Amazon account:
- Go to smile.amazon.com instead of amazon.com, and log in with your normal Amazon password.
- You will be asked to pick the charity to receive revenue. In the “search” box, enter Eastern Shore Public Library Foundation.
- You will be taken to a list of organizations with similar names. Select Eastern Shore Public Library Foundation, Accomac, VA.
- A window will open telling you that you must log into smile.amazon.com every time that you use Amazon if you want the funding to go to the library. Check the box confirming that you understand.
- Now set up a shortcut or bookmark to Amazon with the smile.amazon.com address, and you are ready to go. If you use Google Chrome, place a one-click icon right on your toolbar with their free add-on available here: http://tinyurl.com/ybz8qmec.
The more you buy through AmazonSmile, the more you help your library! Please spread the word to ALL your friends and family. This is a rare (and easy!) opportunity for library supporters to contribute to a worthy cause at NO COST to them. Thank you for your support!
