ALA and Women’s Day magazine ask for your ideasAugust 24, 2008 9:55 am American Library Association, library users
ALA and Women’s Day magazine want to hear your ideas for a topic that gives Women’s Day readers an opportunity to tell the world how important their library is to them.
The Campaign for America’s Libraries, ALA’s public awareness campaign about the value of libraries and librarians, has partnered with Woman’s Day magazine since 2002. Each year, Woman’s Day readers are invited to respond to a question about libraries, and up to four readers’ contributions are published in a spring issue of the magazine.
We would like to solicit your ideas for future topics to be featured in Woman’s Day.
Past editorial topics were:
* How the library improved my health (2008 – article to be published in the March 2009 issue)
* Starting my small business with help from the library (2007)
* How the library changed my life (2006)
* Researching my family tree at the library (2005)
* Why I would want to be a librarian for a day (2004)
* The book that changed my life (2003)
* The relationship between writers and the library (2002)
If you would like to submit an idea, please send an e-mail to Megan McFarlane by Friday, August 29. Please feel free to forward on this message.
