Join in the Fun April 9-15th

Stop in and see the special displays with activity sheets to be returned to awards.

Also, in support of the library and local business, we have a patron who donated gift certificates to local eateries and the theater for door prizes.  Be sure to stop in and sign up.

This year’s theme for National Library Week is “Libraries Transform,”!!

It  is a time to celebrate our nation’s libraries and library workers for transforming lives through free access to technology, information literacy, diverse collections and opportunities for community engagement.

In a world of rapid technological and cultural change, libraries and library workers are establishing themselves as trusted resources for both individuals and the community at large. Librarians can help guide library users through the information jungle to find what they are seeking, whether they are verifying news sources, investigating healthcare options or exploring sources of student financial aid.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is observed each April by the American Library Association and libraries across the country.
