National Library Week 2016

Posted 04/11/2016

 

Transform your ideas about the library: celebrate National Library Week April 10-16

This week, the Rod Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. 

Libraries today are more about what they do, for and with library users as opposed to what they have for patrons. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or just relax. Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources that can be accessed in person or online.

Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. At the Rod Library we are transforming the spaces and services we have to offer.

Rod Library is celebrating National Library Week by giving away a Kindle Fire.  To enter this drawing share a selfie of one of your favorite library employees, library study spots, books, writing on our whiteboard, or one of our library displays.  Tag us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and us both hashtags #NLW16 & #ILoveRodLibrary.

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.
