Grocery Card Program

Dear Library Friend,

Our organization participates in several scrip programs. Each pays us a percentage of what you spend in their stores (1-5% for the grocery stores, with online stores paying as much as 12%) at no cost to you. We have already earned over $17,000 for the library and hope to earn even more in the future. It’s certainly possible, but it can’t happen without the participation of lots of Friends and others.  

The process is completely free, though it is different for each of the programs.

Method #2

• Stop by the store and pick up a card at the check-stand. When you fill out the form to register the card, you may not find Friends of the Modesto Library on the list of participating organizations; just write it in yourself.  

• Ask the cashier to swipe the card each time you shop.

Friends of the Modesto Library can also earn money when shopping online at over 800 stores (list available at ). One of the ways to earn is to go to the eScrip site, click on a store name, and then do your shopping at that store. Or, from the list of stores, you can do a product search and decide which store to purchase from. You can also download an app that reminds you to click the eScrip icon before you make your online purchases. You can read more details at the eScrip website (
