Today’s libraries are more than just books. Increasingly, they are places of creativity where people can meet to share a hobby, use a 3D printer, edit a video, or use software to record their own music. Libraries offer access to the tools and technology essential to the economic and cultural lives of their communities.
What have you created with the help of your local library? Did you research or write your book, learn how to make a hand-knitted scarf or culinary creation? Have you used the library’s 3D printer or produced a video? Did the library help you find a new job or get your small business off the ground? Or perhaps the library’s homework help service made a difference in your child’s last report card.
The possibilities really are unlimited.
Share what you’ve made with the help of your local library on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #librarymade for the chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Maker Shed or Amazon. Promotion begins Monday April 13 at noon CT and ends Friday, April 17 at noon CT.
Official rules are available on the #LibraryMade web page at. http://ilovelibraries.org/librarymade on I Love Libraries website.

Talk one-on-one with Human Books who have unique stories. Each Human Book draws upon personal experiences and knowledge of gender-related issues. Topics include: how undergarments shape women’s roles, sexual orientation and religion, being a Muslim woman in America, stay-at-home moms and dads, female soldiers, homophobia in sports, women and solar engineering, and being man enough to be a male nurse. Human Books are SAU faculty, staff, alums, and QCA community members. Join the conversation.
Human Library Day features topics relevant to any class offered at SAU. This year, we have a great line-up of Human Books! I hope that you encourage/require students to participate in this unique opportunity to examine these primary sources (that just so happen to be human!). Need proof that your students attended? Readers will be given passports that will be stamped after they have checked out a Human Book.
