Great article Keturah! I learned so much in this short article. Thank you for sharing your library's experience and approach. 

I have a few suggestions so that it will be ready for the blog. First, please add a title and byline for yourself. Second, I have a few changes based on the ALSC Blog submission site. 

  • Ideally, each blog post will include at least one photo or image. Can you include one or two photos?
  • Where you have the facts about hunger, can this be a list, rather than paragraph form?
  • Another feature of blog posts is that the text is broken up with headings. Can you add headings between every one or two paragraphs? 

In order to give you time for these edits, it will post in April. 

Let me know if you have questions or concerns.
