Celebrate National Library Week – Win a Fire HD6 Tablet

Leave a comment

Amazon Fire HD6National Library Week is a time to honor the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. This year it runs from April 12 through 16, and the theme is “Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library.”

We’re inviting you to help us celebrate National Library Week by sharing your “first time” library memory and/or what you hope to find when you visit the restored building at 201 Main Street “for the first time.”

What’s a “first time” library memory? Simply describe your earliest memory of a library. It can be any library, and about any facet of the library experience…the building, the books, a librarian, or even someone else you met while there. You may also include how this experience made you feel, or how it influenced your attitude towards libraries, although this is not required.

Or, If you would rather, you may share whatever thoughts or imaginings you have about the “new” library at 201 Main Street. Possible topics include appearance, amenities, services, displays, collections, programs, the environment around the library and more.

Of course, you may answer both questions if you wish.

All respondents will be entered into a drawing for one of two Amazon Fire HD6 tablets. The drawing will be held on Monday, April 20, 2015.

There are a whole bunch of ways to enter:

1. Leave your thoughts in a comment to this post.

2. Leave your thoughts in a comment on our Facebook page.

3. Tweet your (brief) thoughts with the hashtag #JJMLFirstTime.

4. Visit our website at where we’ve created a simple form for you to fill out.

5. Go retro and bring your thoughts written on paper to the library. There’s a box at the front desk where you can deposit your entry.

We can’t wait to hear your stories!
