Campaign Kick Off a Big Success

Last week was the statewide Smartest Card Campaign kick off - what a success. The Randolph County Public Library hosted the event and organized an "open mike", featuring our campaign spokesperson, Cathy Smith Bowers, and several local poets. What an excellent partnership between the library and its' community. Cathy entertained the audience with stories about her childhood which gave insight into her poem that she shared, entitled "Namesake." Members from the local writers network shared their work and local resident Phil Shore closed the evening with a reading of his poem about the library card. You can view Phil's reading at

Also check out some great pictures of the event

In addition we had a webinar to share great ideas on promoting your smartest card campaign. The webinar is now archived you can listen at

Put your thinking hats on - Poetry Month is in April - think about agencies you can partner with and programs you can provide to your public.
