About the Tell Us Your Library Story Campaign

Stories give us inspiration and hope. They connect us and make us human. With stories, we have the power to share our experiences, inspire others, and change lives. 

Through the Tell Us Your Library Story campaign, we’ll share stories that shine a spotlight on how libraries help build thriving and resilient communities. 

Share these stories with your family and friends. Help us spread the word about the value of libraries in our communities. We hope these stories will inspire you to share your own stories with us.
