Celebrate National Library Week
April 7, 2021
This week is National Library Week. First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. The theme for this year 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.
The Glasgow City-County Library is open and also celebrating the week. Come on in from 11 am to 3 pm Monday through Saturday! The library is continually receiving new books, movies, and audio CDs. National Library Week is a great time to get your library card if you do not have one. They are free and only take a couple of minutes to set up. If the library does not have an item you are looking for, our friendly staff can help you find it with Interlibrary Loan.
We are excited about the renovations taking place in the basement's Horizon Room. Look forward to having a revitalized study and meeting area. We still ask that patrons wear masks inside the building. Story time is a virtual program for now. It is still a lot of fun. This month has a cute Easter themed take home kit. The library staff have been working hard to keep the program top notch. We will keep you posted as things change and reopen again. Come on in, say hello, and "Welcome to Your Library".
