Atyourlibrary.org is the public website for the American Library Association’s public awareness campaign – Campaign for America’s Libraries, which promotes the value of libraries and librarians. The goal of www.atyourlibrary.org is to encourage patrons to visit their local libraries by providing information and recommending resources that everyone can take advantage of at their local library.
New articles are uploaded every two weeks, in which experts offer the latest trends, how-tos and tips for parents (http://www.atyourlibrary.org/family-life), job seekers (http://www.atyourlibrary.org/career-development-and-job-searching), teenagers (http://www.atyourlibrary.org/teen-spotlight) and kids (http://www.atyourlibrary.org/kidding-around).
Also, ALA’s blog (http://www.atyourlibrary.org/blog) encourages discussion on the value, importance and all-around cool things that libraries are offering. Join in the conversation! Recommended resources are linked to the WorldCat (http://www.worldcat.org/) database, where available, which provides a list of the nearest libraries with the recommended item.
Librarians are welcome to browse the site to learn about all sorts of interesting topics, but, most importantly, spread the word about the site and share this wonderful resource with fellow librarians and patrons.
