national library week 2016April 11-15, 2016:  Libraries Transform

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's theme is Libraries Transform.  Whether learning to read, prepping for entrance exams, getting help in a job search, mastering a computer skill, or something else, the Library has the free resources and knowledgeable staff available to you and your family to help transform your lives.
