Submit to “Public Libraries” Perspective, due December 1

The PLA Blog posted this yesterday:

“Perspectives” is a regular feature in Public Libraries, the journal of the Public Library Association. Each issue has essays on a particular topic of interest to public library practitioners. For the January/February, 2012, issue, you’re invited to write about:

  • How your library is balancing its resources? Print? AV? Electronic? What about realia (puppets, toys, coupons, sewing patterns, tools, games, laptops)?
  • How are you adjusting to e-books?
  • How are you balancing your services? Adults, seniors, teens, tweens, kids, outreach, jobseekers?
  • How are you seeking new users? New residents from elsewhere in the U.S.? New residents from other countries?
  • How are you advocating for your library and with whom?
  • How are you keeping your staff and coworkers motivated and up-to-date?
  • These are topic-starters….you may have ideas of your own!

Essays should be 800-1000 words. Photographs are welcome! E-mail your essay to Nann Blaine Hilyard, nbhilyard, by December 1, but earlier is better.

This is a good opportunity to get some ink on what you’re doing at your library.
