IMG_5124National Library Week April 12- 18, 2015

“Behind Every Great Community is a Great Library

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. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.

During this week, come into the Wabasha Public Library and help us celebrate with prize drawings, programs, and activities. The Friends of the Wabasha Public Library have two prize bags to give away, one for an adult and one for a child. Everytime you check out an item at the Library, you can enter your name into the drawing. A second drawing will take place for everyone who registers for a new Library card during National Library Week.

On Tuesday, April 14th, at 6:30 p.m.at the Library, Author Steve Snook will do a reading from his book “One Degree South”. This event is co-sponsored by River Junction Arts Council.

On Thursday, April 16th, Teen Literature Day, will be celebrated. The purpose of this celebration is to raise awareness among the general public that young adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today’s teens. At the Library we will have on display the “The Teens’ Top Ten”. This list is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year!

On Friday, Spring Storytime  at 10:00 a.m. with Becky Hetrick, Wabasha-Kellogg ECFE Coordinator, joining in on the activities.
