Good Deeds

Another way to donate to the Rio Library can be done through the Amazon Smile program.  Amazon Smile  is a simple and automatic way to support charitable organizations every time you shop.  If you go to, you can sill make all the same purchases you would have made at the regular Amazon site.  The difference being, .05% of the total purchase price will go to the charitable organization of your choice.  Sign-in with your Amazon username and login and do a search for Rio Area Library Friends Inc. to help support the library in a new and easy way.

Thank you for thinking of others.  Please email us with your good deeds - your work inspires us all to do more.
