Welcome to Your Library: Celebrating National Library Week

This week is National Library Week and the Library will celebrate by welcoming the community to the Library through a time-honored tradition.

In keeping with this year's theme, "Welcome to Your Library", we will welcome community members with a "Welcome Wagon" on Thursday, April 8. Our "Welcome Wagon" will honor a tradition dating back to the days of the early pioneers when wagon trains traveled west and local people would welcome the travelers with food, water, and gifts.

Visitors who stop by the Library on Thursday will be welcomed with a special "goodie" bag filled with various novelties, as well as information about the Library.

Take-and-Make crafts will also be available for both children and adults, while supplies last.

National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed by libraries of all types across the country each April. This year's theme, "Welcome to Your Library", promotes the idea that "libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building" and are "places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery, and exploration.'
