It’s National Library Week, a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide - and the perfect time to discover how Worlds Connect @ Your Library.
The Friends of Mason County M. Beven Eckert Memorial Library will once again celebrate National Library Week with the popular Book Sale! The opening event on Monday April 13 from 3 p.m.-6 p.m. will be for ‘members only’ but as always cost to join is nominal and available at the time of purchase. Refreshments will be on hand and everyone is welcome! Another new twist will be that the Book Sale will continue daily throughout the week during Library hours and the Bake Sale will join in the celebration beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday April 18, to wrap up the week!
“Everyday, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities,” says Carolyn Nixon, librarian. “At our library, people of all backgrounds can come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to access the Internet, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to get a job or to find help with their homework.”
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. Show your support and plan to attend the Book Sale beginning on Monday, April 13th from 3 p.m.-6 p.m.!
