Come Celebrate National Library Week with Us
April 15, 2013
National Library Week, which recognizes and honors the significant impact that libraries and librarians have on the community, is April 14-20th, 2013. Our theme this year is Communities Matter @ Your Library. In the 1950s, it was thought that Americans were reading fewer books and spending too much time listening to the radio and watching TV. This concerned the American Library Association (ALA) as well as the American Book Publishers, so they formed an organization known as the National Book Committee. The goal of this committee was to boost awareness of people reading in their spare time, promote earnings and health, and create a strong and fulfilled family life.
The Blue Springs North Branch staff will be at the following Blue Springs’ locations promoting our library services: U. S. Post Office, April 16-17 from 11-3; Price Chopper North, April 19 from 12-7; and Dollar General North, April 20 from 10-3. Please stop by any of these locations to learn more about what’s offered at the Library.!
