Gale's New Library Campaign Asks Public to Share "My Library Story"

Sep 30, 2014

Ninety-five percent of Americans believe public libraries play an important role in giving everyone a chance to succeed, but today's headlines focus on the many challenges facing libraries and their risk of becoming irrelevant. Gale, a provider of library resources and part of Cengage Learning, is attempting to change those headlines with a campaign encouraging everyone to share My Library Story through a new online community designed to help libraries tell a strong value story around their impact.

For every story submitted to My Library Story, now through February 28, 2015, Gale will donate $1 to an advertising fund used to promote libraries during National Library Week 2015. In addition, Gale has developed a short video to bring to life the benefits that libraries offer and inspire all library staff and users to share their library stories in an effort to change the conversation taking place around libraries today.
