Celebrate National Library Week

April 7 marks the beginning of National Library Week this year. This is an annual event that helps recognize the impact libraries have on communities and individuals. There are lots of ways for you to recognize this event and learn a little bit more about the library while you’re at it. Here are some of the ways that you can celebrate having such a great library (no need for false modesty) in the community:

Get a Book Date for Valentine's Day!

Books will always love you and be there for you. It’s one of those comforting facts of life. In a lot of ways they’re better than people. I mean, they don’t wake you up in the night, they wait until you're ready for them, they don’t eat your food, and the list goes on. So, in recognition of that fact, we recommend that instead of making sure you have a date tonight, you should celebrate this Valentine’s Day right by visiting the library and getting a great book to read. Here’s some of our recommendations to try:

Valentine’s Day Party

Celebrate African American History Month With Us!

I love our national holidays that celebrate history and culture. Working at the library, I get the opportunity to plan and participate in programs that teach me more about cultures and to interact with peoples that I wouldn’t get to otherwise. That is why I am so excited that February is African American History Month and you should definitely be too. We have some amazing activities for all ages that will allow you to learn more about African American heritage and history, while having fun at the same time. Here are some of the great activities we have planned:

Wiggle with Words, presented by Jalia Movement Arts- Wednesday, February 6, 11:00 AM
