What is AmazonSmile
The Friends has registered with AmazonSmile to be eligible to receive .5% of each eligible purchase made through the AmazonSmile portal. Once you have set up your access, the donation is made automatically by the AmazonSmile Foundation.
Here is how to go about supporting the Friends this way in addition to your regular support.
- Have an Amazon account and be logged in to the AmazonSmile portal.
- Go to the AmazonSmile setup page and choose us as your charity.
- When selecting products, you can see if that selection is eligible (most are).
The Friends of the RB Library and the RB Library will be grateful for your participation. It’s especially valuable at this time of the year but .5% of every eligible purchase from Amazon throughout the year will help us and our library achieve our goals of bringing the right library materials and programs to all the children, teens, and adults of Rancho Bernardo and its environs.
Thank you so much for helping.
