Libraries Empower

How Does the Library Empower You? Tell Us for the Chance to Win!

There’s nothing more empowering than a library card. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, libraries provide people of all ages the opportunity to pursue their dreams and passions.

This Library Card Sign-up Month, you can help spread some library love by posting to social media about how the library empowers you for a chance to win. Here's how it works:

bullet  Post to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #LibrariesEmpower.
bullet  Entries can also be submitted by posting as a comment or wall post on the I Love Libraries Facebook page.
bullet  Don't forget to tag your library!
bullet  The creator of one randomly-selected post will receive a $100 Visa gift and an ALA Graphics The Child Poster.
bullet  Additionally, three second-place winners will receive an ALA Graphics The Child Poster.
bullet  The #LibrariesEmpower promotion begins Wednesday, September 1, at noon CT and ends Wednesday, September 22, at noon CT.

All library lovers are encouraged to participate!
