National Library Week- April 12-18

National Library Week (April 12-18) is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers to their schools and communities. National Library Week is not only a great time to see what’s new at your library, but also a time to stand up and speak out as a library advocate. During the week we will be holding a food drive for the local pantry. For each food item brought into the library, we will wave fifty cents in overdue library fines. This is an opportunity to clear up your fines and help the local Food Pantry. Also you may just drop off food items if you don’t have fines.
