National Library Week 2018

This week, Heyworth Public Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries lead their communities through the transformative services, programs and expertise they offer.

April 8-14 is National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren’t just places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions.

Libraries of all types have long been evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Diverse groups including elected officials, small business owners and students depend upon libraries and the resources they offer. Resources like e-books, materials for English-language learners, and programs for job seekers are just a few ways libraries and librarians are transforming to lead their communities. Community members can also develop their own leadership skills at the library, with endless opportunity to build skills and confidence through resources and programming.

Heyworth Public Library helps lead the community by providing Money Smart Month programs such as upcoming Advanced Social Security Planning for 2018 on Tuesday, April 17, at 6 p.m and Sonja Reese’s Grab and Go Book presentation to plan for family emergencies on Saturday, April 21, at 10:30 a.m.

“The library helps lead our community by advocating for widespread access to crucial services and lifelong learning,” said Beth Porter. “Libraries level the playing field for people of any age who seek information and access to technologies to improve their quality of life.”

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.

For more information, visit the Heyworth Public Library at 119 E. Main St., call 309-473-2313 or see the library’s website at heyworthlibrary.com. Join the library on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Have you picked up your copy of The Crucible by Arthur Miller? Ann is a direct descendant of two persons accused of being witches executed during the Salem Witch Trials of 1692.
