It's National Library Week!

Join the circle of knowledge @ your library: celebrate National Library Week at the Lansing Public Library, April 13-19, 2008

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 you can join the circle of knowledge @ your library.

The Lansing Public Library is celebrating National Library Week with different events for adults, teens, and children. Watch our blog and check our website for more information.

“Everyday, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities,” says Debbie Albrecht, director of Lansing Library. “At our library, people of all backgrounds can come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to get a job or to find homework help, attend story times, research their family genealogy, and much, much more.”

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.
