Woman's Day Magazine Library Contest
What makes your library special to your community? How does it enrich the lives of you and your neighbors? Tell us about it in an essay of 700 words or less. Up to four women’s stories will be featured in an upcoming issue of Woman’s Day and/or on WomansDay.com. Enter between February 9 and May 9, 2010. Visit the ALA Contest & Rules page for more details.
This initiative continues a nine-year partnership between the magazine and American Library Association’s (ALA) Campaign for America’s Libraries—ALA’s public awareness campaign that promotes the value of libraries and librarians and has generated millions of dollars worth of editorial coverage for libraries. Since 2002 Woman’s Day has asked its readers to write in about “how the library has changed my life,” “how the library helped improve my health” and “how the library helped me deal with the tough economy.”
Thousands of libraries of all types – across the country and around the globe - use the Campaign’s @ your library® brand. The Campaign is made possible by ALA’s Library Champions, corporations and foundations that advocate the importance of the library in American society.
