The Hood River County Library Foundation starts a fundraising campaign today called "20-20 Vision," for readers of all ages.
Participants sponsor a book title, for $20, and pledge to pay $1 every time the book is checked out of the GorgeLink system in Hood River County -- up to 20 book loans.
Hence the name 20-20 Vision. Sponsors are committed to no more than $40 per title.
Proceeds will help furnish the library, which will be expanded starting later this year.
To sign up for 20-20 Vision, go to the library in Hood River, Cascade Locks, or Parkdale. Individuals or families can sponsor a book and children under 10 can do so for $1, no matching pledge required.
On March 9, the Hood River News will publish the list of books and sponsors' names.
On or about May 1, the Hood River News will publish the "results" up to that point; the final tally will be published in the June 5 edition of the Hood River News.
Sponsors will voluntarily send in their pledges.
