Librarians know best: our communities matter!

In light of this week’s tragedy in Boston and the many who pitched in to help, the theme of this year’s National Library Week (April 14-20), “Communities matter @ your library” seems all the more pertinent and poignant.

As many libraries struggle to reach people in this increasingly digital/technological world, the theme is an invitation to “local campus, school, and business communities to discover your library as a hub for engaging in creative conversations about the community’s needs.”

People are encouraged to “take this special week to show that your library is so much more than a repository of resources—that it’s the place for discussion that can enrich, shape, and transform your community.” If you haven't been to your local library recently, check it out!
