Today kicks off National Library Week! 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. We will be celebrating all week long with special events, door prizes, and lots of library love! When you stop by the library this week, please take a moment to sign our special celebration display.
