National Library Week is April 10-16, 2011

National Library Week is April 10-16, 2011.  You should celebrate by reading, and then, to relax, read some more.  You could also read while you're waiting for the week to arrive.

The slogan for this year is "visit your library today and create your own story."  Quoting further from the official American Library Association (ALA) poster:

  • Today’s libraries can help you discover a new and exciting world. Take advantage of the free access to books and computers, homework help, assistance with resumes and job searches, accurate financial information, adult education courses, support for new Americans, CDs, DVDs and much more. Don’t forget, your librarian is information smart and can help you find the right answer @ your library.

Visit the American Library Association (ALA) web site to read more about National Library Week.  April is School Library Month, too, so students, visit your school library, as well as your public library.

You may download the official ALA National Library Week poster from here.  Author John Grisham is honorary chair.  Our Library has a couple of unofficial posters, featuring our feline roving reporter, Cauli Le Chat, and her "cub" reporter, Harley Quinn (along with the "Lady With the Red Hair").  Click on the images below to enlarge them.
