Have you used the library to help save money during tough times? Share your story with Woman’s Day magazine!
The public library plays an important role as Americans face tough economic times. Libraries offer their communities access to computers and the Internet, financial literacy skills, assistance with job searches, and resources to help small businesses.
Do you have a story about using the resources and services at the library to save money, search for a job or manage your small business? If so, you could be selected to appear in Woman’s Day magazine.
Between February 17 – May 18, women 18 and over are invited to tell their story in 700 words or less and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Up to four stories will be highlighted in the March 2010 issue of Woman’s Day. For more information and to read the official rules, visit www.womansday.com/ala.
The initiative was developed by Woman’s Day and the American Library Association’s (ALA) Campaign for America’s Libraries, (ala.org/@yourlibrary) ALA's public awareness campaign that promotes the value of libraries and librarians.
