The Georgetown Peabody Library wants your input on the future direction of Library services. We are conducting a town-wide survey to help us understand where the Library fits with the future vision and development of Georgetown. The survey will take between 5 and 10 minutes and will allow the Library to apply for grants. The deadline for filling out the survey is Wednesday, June 1st. The survey link is here.
Did you know that you can make a free donation to the charity of your choice every time you shop at Amazon? Amazon has something called the Smile Program and if you sign up every time you shop Amazon makes a donation to the charity of your choice at Amazon’s expense. Their list of charities includes every charity registered with the IRS. The one issue you need to be aware of is the charity you pick has to have set themselves up with Amazon or the money goes into an account on hold until the charity signs up with them. I have already worked through this issue with the Georgetown Education Foundation (Georgetown Public Education Foundation Inc). You can read about the program here.
