Vote for a Pepsi grant for the North Bend Library

The North Bend Library application for a $50,000 grant from the Pepsi Corporation has been accepted. Winners are selected by public voting.

Voting started Aug. 1 and continues to Aug. 31. One can vote by going to, clicking on the Neighborhoods tab or the $50,000 tab, put North Bend in the search box and then vote for the library grant. North Bend's "Raise the Roof" project must at least be among the top 10 vote getters in the $50,000 category to get the grant.

Voters can vote once a day for up to ten projects. Members of the North Bend Library Foundation encourage everyone to vote daily and e-mail others the information so that they can vote also. There can only be one vote from each e-mail address and a registration is needed for the first time voters.

Here's how to vote:

• Click here to go to

• Click on "Browse Ideas and Vote"

• There will be a search tool in the upper right of the web page. It is white against the blue background and has an icon of a small magnifying glass in it. Type in "North Bend." (Make sure you are using the search bar on the Pepsi page with the blue background. There may be a similar search bar on your web browser's toolbar that is not part of the web page.)

• The "Raise the Roof" project of the North Bend Library Foundation will be the first option. Click on "Vote for this idea"

• The first time you vote, you will have to register to vote on the site. This is free to do and takes just seconds.

Remember to vote every day!
