Along with the beautiful spring weather comes National Library Week! This year it’s April 13-19, and we’ve got a display up where you can tell us why you love the library, and how you know the library loves you. Come visit! And while you’re here, check out a book*, attend a program (see the calendar), use a library laptop, browse the magazines and newspapers, or just sit and read in the beautiful Reading Room.
*In addition to books, you can also check out audiobooks on CD, Playaways, music CDs, TV shows and movies on DVD, magazines, and more! Or “visit” the library from home and download an audiobook or e-book.
Last year the honorary chair of National Library Week was Caroline Kennedy, and this year it’s an equally recognizable name: Judy Blume. Blume is a longtime advocate for libraries and the author of such enduring favorites as Are You There, God? It’s Me, Margaret, Forever, and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
“Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.” –Judy Blume, 1993
Happy National Library Week! Twitter users can follow along all week at #NLW14.
