Become a Contributor to Public Libraries Online

Public Libraries Online logo


Public Libraries Online is evolving. We are updating the look and adding new live content including book reviews, blogs, author interviews, and more. We invite you to become a part of PL Online's dynamic, high-profile team. If you are interested in blogging, the expectation is that you would produce at least two 400-word, library-related blog posts per month. Book reviews and author interviews will be assigned as needed. These are volunteer positions. All work will be done virtually with regular submission deadlines and a managing editor.

We are looking for a diverse group of contributors, so don't be shy! Please e-mail your contact information to Public Libraries editor Kathleen Hughes at khughes@ala.org or Lian Sze at lsze@ala.org. Your information will only be used for this purpose and will not be shared. In the e-mail subject line, type "PL Online Contributor Application" and include a message of introduction along with your first and last name.

If you have questions, please e-mail Kathleen Hughes (khughes@ala.org) or Lian Sze (lsze@ala.org).
