    Hi everyone,

    RAILS is looking for staff from special libraries to contribute guest posts to our My Library Is... Blog. RAILS developed the My Library Is… campaign to help member libraries tell your stories and prove your library's value to stakeholders, including: current and potential library users, funders, governing boards, parent institutions/companies, colleagues, elected officials, and more.

    Blog posts should include the following elements:

    • Around 500 words (can be slightly over)
    • Focus on topics related to My Library Is... campaign including marketing, advocacy, storytelling, community outreach/engagement, etc.
    • Utilize the elements of persuasive online writing: clever headlines, subtitles, bullet points, etc.
    • Images are encouraged
    We welcome posts from any staff members from any library in Illinois. If interested, please contact Dan Bostrom, RAILS Member Engagement Manager, Thank you!
