Your purchases are tracked and available to you online, allowing you to see just how much you are earning for the library!
Once you’ve registered your cards (and it only takes a few seconds), you can also access well-known merchants such as Land’s End, Eddie Bauer, Office Max, Target, the Washington Post and others.
Shop Online at iGive
At iGive, not only is a percentage of your purchase price donated to DCPLF, but we receive a donation just for searches you conduct through iGive. If you purchase something within 45 days of joining (joining is free), a bonus $5 donation will be made to DCPLF.
