New Woman’s Day/ALA Initiative - Using the library for health information

From now until May 11, Woman’s Day magazine, in conjunction with American Library Assocation's (ALA’s) Campaign for America’s Libraries, is collecting stories on how its readers have used the library to improve a family member’s or their own health. The magazine announced the initiative in its March issue, where it asks its readers aged 18 and over to submit their stories in 700 words or less. Up to four of the submissions will be featured in the March 2009 issue. If you have used a library to do research or find information on health issues for yourself or a family member, write up your story and email it to womansday@ala.org.
