National Library Week: Lives Change @ Your Library

The week of April 13-19 is National Library Week! This year's theme is Lives Change @ Your Library, with honorary chairperson Judy Blume. Today’s libraries can help you and your family discover a new and exciting world. Visit your library for computer resources for teens and adults, help with your job search, access to subscription databases, library-recommended websites and homework help. You also can obtain information about how to become a U.S. citizen, bilingual resources and neutral financial information to help you make important decisions. Libraries are an oasis if you are looking for adult education classes, or for a recommendation on the best books or e-books to expand your horizons.

Want to show support for your library? Tweet about how the library has changed your life using the hashtag #LivesChange and #NLW14. Or, fill out the form on our Library Week LibGuide and let us know how the library has changed your life! Each branch will pick their most inspiring story to be featured on our Facebook page (featured stories will receive a small token of appreciation).

Open the door to change, visit your library! Some library branches will be featuring library-themed programming for National Library Week, so make sure to give our programs & events calendar a look-see.
