Celebrating National Library Week
April 18, 2013
This week the Midwest Genealogy Center, in conjunction with the Mid-Continent Public Library, joins libraries in local schools, college campuses, and communities across the nation in celebrating National Library Week. This week recognizes the attributes, contributions, and value of libraries and its staff in their respective communities.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country, annually each April.
Today, modern libraries are more than repositories for books and other resources. They serve as community centers, places of education, computer labs, and meeting spaces. They are the heart of the community and are there to serve all its citizens of all ages.
Here at MGC, our staff works to deliver not only excellent customer service but also to provide the latest and best genealogical resources from databases and periodicals to books and microfilm. We also offer classes and special programming throughout the year on a variety of topics.
So, in honor of National Library Week, come visit our facility or any MCPL branch and learn about all that 21st century libraries can offer you. For more online information, visit our MGC website and check out our upcoming classes and events.
