My Library My Story

How does your library help make your community stronger? What does your library do to bring the community together? What are your patrons’ favorite things to do at the library?

American Library Association (ALA) President Loida Garcia-Febo hopes these prompts and others can be leveraged to create better advocates and visibility for libraries on the local, national, and international level.

As part of her Libraries = Strong Communities initiative and ALA’s broader Libraries Transform campaign, Garcia-Febo is set to launch the #MyLibraryMyStory video and social media initiative in 2019 with the aim of of mobilizing library advocates and getting them to create and share digital content about the value of their libraries.
