Introducing Minnesota Loves Libraries!

profile-larl_2What does your library do for you? We want to know!

“Minnesota Loves Libraries” is a grassroots advocacy campaign set to run throughout the region through February. We are looking for stories that exemplify service, community connections, and individual success.

Library users are invited to stop by their local library to fill out a postcard or visit the website to use the online form.

The purpose is to gather stories of how Minnesotans use the library and the difference library service, programs and staff make in their lives.
