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:

  • Set a time to come in to the library this week.
  • Thank a librarian for helping you on April 9, Library Worker’s Appreciation Day.
  • Share what you love about our library on social media by using the hashtag #MyLibraryMyStory on Instagram or Twitter.
  • Join the Friends of Evelyn Meador Library or donate to the library by going to www.friendsofevelynmeador.org.
  • Try something at the library you’ve never done before, like checking out a Busy Bag or IPad, going to a program, or seeing the art gallery in the Meeting Room.
  • Sign up for a library card if you don’t have one.
  • Explore our online resources, like our online books and databases.
  • Ask for a volunteer form at the Reference Desk so that you can help out at the library.
