CFP: The History of Your Library!

The American Library Association’s National Library Week is coming up on April 19-25, 2020!

Why not celebrate this special time for libraries by writing a short piece about the history of your library?

LHRT News & Notes is eager to publish informal essays (even just a few hundred words) about histories of specific libraries. Perhaps you might even have a brief history already created for another purpose that you could refine for the blog?

Essays can offer a general history–or focus on one particularly interesting chapter from your library‘s chronicles.  Images and primary source excerpts are very welcome too.  See our Library Chronicles column for examples of past submissions.

Please send submissions to

Hoping to learn more about your library‘s history soon!
