Support the Horry County Library with Amazon

Conway, South Carolina – The Horry County Library has joined with one of the largest retailers in the world, Amazon, to support the Horry County Memorial Library Endowment Fund. The Fund provides an external funding source to help with the expansion and development of library facilities, enlarging collections and paying speakers for all branches.

On the Library’s website patrons will see three buttons to the right of each catalog item: Text This To Me, Place Hold, and Buy It Now. When a patron clicks the Buy It Now button, they will be taken to the Amazon website. If the item is purchased from Amazon through the Horry County Memorial Library (HCML) website, the HCML Endowment fund will get a percentage of the price! The program is not just for books, anything purchased on Amazon through the HCML website will benefit the HCML endowment fund.

Horry County Memorial Library Director Clifton Boyer said, “It is my hope that library patrons that shop online will use the Library’s Buy It Now link to Amazon.com to conduct all of their online purchases. It is a small but meaningful way to help grow the HCML Endowment Fund.”
