Lives change @ your library

National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use.

Spending quality time with our kids and teens is critical to their growth and development—and it  fosters strong bonds and relationships. But, in our fast paced lives, finding opportunities for quality time together can be a daily challenge.

We’re working and commuting longer hours. Our kids’ schedules are packed. Budgets are tight. And planning even small outings takes time and
energy.

Fortunately, there are a variety of things to do, new
adventures to begin, and amazing things to learn-right at your library.

Libraries are the place to connect with your kids.

School and public libraries open up new worlds, spark imagination, encourage reading, help develop critical thinking and prepare and support kids and teen in school and life.

And most of the materials and programs available at your library are free!

Of course we’re excited…it’s National Library Week, a time to celebrate libraries.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.

All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate. This year (2008) National Library Week is April 13-19.

We can celebrate our libraries year ’round though, just by using its resources and spreading the good word about your library.
