This week we're celebrating National Library Week in Seekerville.
The American Library Association provides Facebook and Twitter Links so you can follow along with the fun this week. Check it out here.
And here in Seekerville we're asking "What was your very first library memory?"
And on behalf of my friend, S, I'm asking..where are libraries as we head into the digital frontier?
Post your thoughts with us today for a chance to win a copy of Kelly L. Stone's Time To Write. Winner announced in the next Weekend Edition.

Ruth Logan Herne will be hangin' with the gals of Get Lost in a Story on Tuesday April 12th where she'll chat about the top ten things that say you're "lost in a story" before she shamelessly promotes her new "Men of Allegany County" series with the debut of Reunited Hearts! Come by and get put in the drawing for something totally Ruthy, like a new Doodle puppy which is way cooler than Mary's old, used cow.
Then on Thursday April 14th Ruthy takes the ferry across Lake Michigan, down the St. Lawrence and sails the seven seas to the Land Down Under and hangs out with Aus Jenny on her blog. Stop by for a chance to win Reunited Hearts, Ruthy's delightful romance of old wrongs and new beginnings, because everybody deserves a second chance. Don't they?
And you can find an insightful interview with Captain Trent Michaels, the to-die-for hero of Reunited Hearts at Craftie Ladies of Romance on Sunday, April 17th. Come join the ladies for a spot o' tea with the good Captain. Total eye-candy experience!
