April 19-25, 2020 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming communities and improving lives. Our library invites all community members to find their place at the library by exploring their passions and discovering new interests through free technology, programs and services. Even though we are can’t come together in-person, we are here to bring programs and services to you.
The library is a place where all people are welcome regardless of age, interests or background. From audiobooks and job-seeking resources to programs and technology assistance, the library has something for everyone. Especially during these difficult times, libraries our here for everyone.
Today’s libraries strive to develop and maintain technology, programs and collections that are as diverse as the populations they serve. “Libraries have long served as trusted and treasured institutions where we can all come together, connect and learn alongside one another,” said Sarah Willeford, Library Director. “National Library Week is a perfect time for community members to check out what’s new at the library and pursue their interests and aspirations.”
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries of all types across the country each April.
