Celebrate Library Week April 10-16 PDF Print E-mail

Enjoy refreshments at Hastings Memorial Library.

Libraries are places for new beginnings. Whether getting the first library card, learning new computer skills or planning a trip, the library is the place where a story begins.
This National Library Week, join the nation’s libraries and librarians and Create a story at the library.
Where do you turn when you’re looking for the best information? How about your library? Find books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and videos, internet access, and all sorts of other resources.
In a world that’s information rich, libraries are information smart. National Library Week is a great time to see what’s new at the local library and how the librarian can help with the information needed.
The Hastings Memorial Library will be joining in the celebration by offering free snacks and refreshments to patrons throughout the week. There will be information about using Overdrive, the new downloadable eBook/audiobook service, and information on how to use the local history and genealogy resources.
In honor of National Library Week, and for the entire month of April, the library will be observing Amnesty Month and all fines on returned overdue materials will be waived.
“Everyday, libraries across the country are helping people create their own unique stories,” said Robin Quinn, library director. “Whether it is by opening a book and exploring distant lands, researching their family history, or by learning how to use new technologies to find a job, people at our library are creating new stories for themselves.”
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.
