National Library Week

Help Us Celebrate Libraries Every Day This Week!

National Library Week is a celebration of libraries and the impact they make on the communities they serve. This year, libraries across the country are celebrating National Library Week beginning Sunday, April 4th. The theme is "Welcome to Your Library".

Librarians have found innovative ways to help library users reach beyond the four walls and explore the library virtually. There are several library types including public, academic, school (K-12), and special. Each library caters to a different community of people, thus encouraging a lifetime of learning, community networking, and personal growth.

Join Us Online . . .

We are hosting a series of programs this week as we explore the library virtually. We look forward to having you participate and share your perspectives.
