First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a time to love and celebrate libraries and library workers. This year's theme is Connect With Your Library, and we encourage you to:

  • Connect with a good book or movie! Staff are happy to recommend something, but you can also take advantage of our Book Concierge for adults, Bag o' Books for kids and teens, NoveList Plus for all ages, and so much more.

  • Connect with library staff! Stop in and let us know what you love about the Library. We'll have a post-it board where you can let us know your favorite things about the Library or staff.

  • Connect to technology! Use one of our public computer stations at the Library, or borrow some tech to bring home! Check out a laptop, hotspot, DVD player, or Roku stick.

  • Connect to good information! Staff are happy to help you find reliable information. You can also use our online research tools to find newspaper and magazine articles, consumer information, homework help, language learning tools, and more.

  • Connect to something fun! Sign up for a Library program or event, or check out something fun like a Museum Pass or an item from our Beyond Books Collection, like a ukulele, bocce set, telescope, and more.

The Library is here to help you connect to what you need for life, work, or play. Happy National Library Week!
