St. Joseph Public Library

The St. Joseph Public Library is partnering with online retailer Amazon.com to raise money for the library.

The partnership will allow a portion of some purchases on Amazon.com to be directed to the library's budget. Library director Mary Beth Revels says the proceeds amount to about 5 percent of each purchase from the online retailer and is not limited to books. Customers must use a link specific to the St. Joseph Public Library before purchasing online. Amazon will look and function the same, but will have the words "stjosephpublic-20" at the end of the URL, which designates that the sale is benefiting the library. Links to the fundraiser are on the Amazon site and at the library's website.
