New Women's Day Initiative

Where is the best place to go to find reliable and accurate information about your health? The answer is @ your library.

From now until May 11, Woman’s Day magazine, in conjunction with ALA’s Campaign for America’s Libraries, is collecting stories on how its readers have used the library to improve a family member’s or their health.

The magazine announced the initiative in its March issue, where it asks its readers aged 18 and over to submit their stories in 700 words or less. Stories can be sent to womansday@ala.org. Up to four of the submissions will be featured the March 2009 issue of Woman’s Day.

Librarians can promote this initiative locally by downloading sample promotional materials from The Campaign for America's Libraries’ Web site. Sample tools include a press release, newsletter copy and Web button.
