Gale, a division of Cengage Learning, has launched the “My Library Story” community project. With this new website, the organization invites library advocates to share stories about what public libraries mean to them.
From now until February 28, 2015, every story submission will prompt Gale to donate $1.00 to a library advertising fund. Follow this link to watch a promotional video about this project.
Senior V.P. Frank Menchaca had this statement in the press release: ”If we’re going to change the headlines about libraries today, we need to tell a stronger story around what it is that libraries do and how they change lives for the better. Through the Career Online High School program, which brings accredited education to public libraries and our newly launched My Library Story community, Gale is providing the tools and the platform for libraries to demonstrate their value.”
