    Good article, and a wonderful idea to link us to writing opportunities. I love my library and my library experiences, and can think of nothing I'd rather write in praise of...well, almost nothing.

    I LOVE my local public library. I actually feel like I helped to build it - I managed the PR team for the Santa Monica Public Library Grand Opening and got to work with the architect, landscaper and interior designers as well as staging events and press tours. To this day I have such an affinity for libraries in general and the Santa Monica library specifically. I will definitely enter this contest!
