(Chicago) - An interview with author Elizabeth Gilbert, best-selling author of "Eat, Pray, Love" is featured at www.atyourlibrary.org this week. The website provides information and recommended resources that everyone can take advantage of at their local library.
Other new content includes an article about the photography of the acclaimed Henri Cartier-Bresson, a piece on finding and applying for federal jobs by Amanda Davis, Partnership for Public Service, an interview with author Jeffery Meyers, who has recently written a book about the complicated relationship between Marilyn Monroe and playwright Arthur Miller, book reviews from Booklist and an interview with Nigerian author and poet Chris Abani.
@yourlibrary.org is the website for the American Library Association’s public awareness campaign — the Campaign for America’s Libraries, which highlights the value of libraries and librarians and connects people to the free resources at their local library.
Prepared by librarians and other experts, new articles are uploaded regularly with how-tos and tips for parents, job seekers, teenagers, kids and a variety of other subjects, including arts and entertainment. Recommended resources are linked to the WorldCat database, which provides a list of the nearest libraries where the recommended item can be accessed. Librarians can post the site’s content on their own websites and use it in their newsletters.
“We welcome you to browse the site to learn about all sorts of interesting topics, but most importantly we encourage you to visit your local library to find out how you can benefit from the knowledge of the librarians and the abundant resources available there,” said Mark R.Gould, editor-in-chief of the @ your library website.
The site is underwritten by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Disney Book Group.
