National Library Week is coming up on April 8-14, 2018! The Library History Round Table (of the American Library Association) News and Notes is celebrating this special time for libraries by publishing informal essays (even just a few hundred words) about histories of specific libraries. LHRT News and Notes is the official blog of the ALA Library History Round Table: https://lhrtnews.wordpress.com/. Here are a few examples from last year's National Library Week: https://lhrtnews.wordpress.com/2017/04/11/celebrating-national-library-week-2017/. Library staff, please consider submitting an essay on your library and, please help to distribute this call for proposals to faculty, students, librarians, and other interested parties. Essays can offer a general history–or focus on one particularly interesting chapter from a library‘s history. Images and primary source excerpts are very welcome too.
For more information, please contact Brett Spencer, Editor, LHRT News and Notes, Reference and Instruction Librarian, Thun Library and the Boscov-Lakin Information Commons, Penn State Berks, (610) 396-6261or firstname.lastname@example.org.
