Support the Foundation with the Online Shopping You're Already Doing



The Christian County Library Foundation is proud to be a part of Amazon Smile!

How does it work? Just point your browser to smile.amazon.com instead of Amazon.com and log into your Amazon account. You will be prompted to select the charitable organization of your choice. Simply enter "Christian County Library Foundation" in the search box and select us.


Once selected, you can shop just like you normally would. Amazon Smile has the same products at the same prices as the regular Amazon website. You even get your Prime membership benefits if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber. The only difference is that by using Amazon Smile and selecting the Foundation as your charity of choice, Amazon will donate 0.5% of the cost of your eligible purchases to the Foundation. You continue to shop like you normally would and Amazon gives back.

There's no better time to start using Amazon Smile. The holidays are right around the corner. What better gift to give the Foundation than the gift of selecting the Christian County Library Foundation as the recipient of Amazon's charitable giving while you do your online shopping!

Check out Amazon Smile for full program details.
