National Library Week celebrated April 12 to 18
April 14, 2009
To the Editor:
This week, schools, campuses and towns across the country are celebrating National Library Week. It is a time to remind the public of the endless possibilities libraries hold for our communities.
The theme for National Library Week this year is “Worlds Connect @ Your Library.”
In today’s economy, the resources that libraries make available are needed more than ever. Where else can we find free access to books, magazines, DVDs, and computer or Wi-Fi hookup? Whether you have not been into a library for years or you visit one every day, a librarian will be there to help answer your questions and show you around.
Grand County libraries keep communities connected by providing space and resources for everyone, while keeping us up-to-date with events and people around the world.
Here are just a few of the special things you can do at your local library during National Library Week April 12 – 18: Children can express their creativity by entering a shoe box book float competition, feed your sugar craving by guessing the correct number of sweets in a jar, write about your favorite book and enter a drawing, or test your kinesthetic skills by entering a library picture scavenger hunt. Find out more details at your local library branch and submit your written entries in person or online at http://www.gcld.org.
The Library District is offering an opportunity to catch up on fines. In celebration of Library Week, all materials returned April 12 – 18 will be fine free.
What can you discover? National Library Week is the perfect time to find out. Go to one of the library branches in Fraser, Granby, Hot Sulphur Springs, Grand Lake or Kremmling or checkout our Web site at http://www.gcld.org. Worlds Connect @ your library.
