I Love Libraries on Facebook
"Following in his Father’s Footsteps" by Shirley Gray, Union (N.J.) Public Library, from The Beyond Words: Celebrating America's Libraries Photo Contest, which helped mark National Library Week 1999 and the Bicentennial of the Library of Congress.
We All Love Libraries—All Over the World!
Other than being in your favorite library and exploring all it has to offer, of course, another way to love libraries—and find more ways to support all libraries—is by joining fellow library lovers at I Love Libraries on Facebook—well over 47,400 strong (as of March 29, 2013)!
Everyone all over the world is welcome at I Love Libraries on Facebook. Here you’ll find links to stories; pictures and quotes about libraries; and very likely you’ll meet friends and colleagues, as well as make new ones. Come back often and learn some of the latest news about libraries, librarians, library workers, and library students, primarily in the United States but also around the world.
What’s more, at I Love Libraries on Facebook you’ll also find ways to share your love of libraries by learning how and where to lend your voice to support positive legislation for libraries or add your voice against negative legislation affecting libraries (e.g., Take Action for Libraries in the United States). You’ll also learn where to sign petitions, write and send letters of support, and more (e.g., Save Libraries in Your State, Helping United States Libraries After Disasters, and international relief efforts).
While you’re at I Love Libraries on Facebook, sign up for the I Love Libraries Newsletter, which, like I Love Libraries on Facebook, is brought to you by ILoveLibraries.org, both an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA) and a website for the people who use and love libraries, produced by the ALA Office for Library Advocacy (OLA). And before you leave, be sure to follow I Love Libraries on Twitter.
I Love Libraries on Facebook—as well as all other things I Love Libraries!—is designed to keep you informed about everything libraries have to offer and how you can continue to love and support libraries.
Now is a good time to add your love and voice to the worldwide support of libraries. And bring your family, friends, and colleagues—and libraries and library schools—with you!
