The Tucson Metro Chamber said the Pima County Public Library recently partnered with local blogger Rachel Miller to launch Love Letters to My Library to encourage people to share letters expressing their library love.
The library's initiative is based on Miller's blog, Love Letters to Tucson, which she launched four years ago to allow the world to explore the community through the eyes of its inhabitants.
The library will post Love Letters to My Library each month on the library’s website and on the Love Letters to Tucson website.
A letter from William Vicens Jr. kicked off the series with musings about neighborhood vibrancy at the Woods Memorial Library.
The library encourages anyone to contribute a love letter. Some topics to explore could be meeting a librarian that challenged you to explore new genres, attending a program that opened your eyes to a new viewpoint or feeling blessed or lucky to have such a wonderful library available to the community. Any story about how the library has positively impacted your life is welcome.
There is no requirement for formatting the letter; it can even be a poem or a piece of art.
To participate, send your letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
