Love For Our Libraries!

Let's Do This

Libraries are invaluable resources accessible to all, offering far more than just books. This week, April 7 – 13, marks National Library Week, providing a perfect opportunity to engage with the young people in your life about the wonders of libraries. Here's how you can celebrate National Library Week together: 

  • Get a library card: If you don’t have a library card, ask an adult to help you get one. It's a free ticket to a world of opportunities. 
  • Explore your library: Visit your local library in person or browse their website to discover their diverse offerings. Beyond books, many libraries provide resources ranging from video games to group programs.
  • Attend a library event: After exploring the library's offerings, sign up for or attend an event! Whether it's joining a knitting club or participating in Storytime, it's a way to support and celebrate National Library Week.
  • Volunteer: Since most libraries are nonprofit organizations, volunteers play a significant role. Check if your library has any volunteering opportunities - plus it's a rewarding activity to do with a young person or mentee! 

Stay Inspired
