National Library Week * "Welcome to your Library"

Description

The library is celebrating national Library week and the Summer Reading Theme of Tales and Tails with NC Zoo passes that can be checked out at the library. For more information please call 828 264784 ext 3.

(April 4 - 10, 2021) is a time to celebrate our nation's libraries, library workers' contributions and promote library use and support.  

The theme for National Library Week 2021 is "Welcome to Your Library." 

During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities' demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users' needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning. 

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.
