Smile at your Friends!

Now you can help the Friends of Decatur Public Library when you shop online!   That’s right…our Friends are now set up with AmazonSmile, so if you shop on you can help out the Library at the same time!

When you first visit AmazonSmile you will be prompted to select an organization. If you use our link (CLICK HERE) it will default to our Friends group, but if you somehow end up with a search field for your charity they are listed as Friends Of The Decatur Public Library Inc.  Once you sign into your Amazon account, it will walk you through the option of downloading an app (Figure 1) so that your AmazonSmile link will be easily accessible in your browser.  

Once you are signed in, your Amazon account should show “Supporting: Friends Of The Decatur Public Library Inc at the top of the screen (Figure 2).  If it doesn’t, you can click on “supporting” and find it.
Once you’ve set up your AmazonSmile account, all you have to do is shop through AmazonSmile and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to our Friends of Decatur Public Library!  The Friends use these funds to do so much for the Library, and now you can contribute with items you were already planning to purchase!
