This week, April 8-14, is National Library Week, a time to highlight the roles of libraries in the world. Most people think of libraries as a quiet place to borrow books, but libraries today are engaging community centers where kids gather for story time, adults can get up to speed on new technology, and friends can meet to discuss the latest book they read. We have resources for job-seekers, programs to teach kids about science, math, and technology, and other materials to meet the needs of the residents of Green Tree.
We’re celebrating National Library Week with some special events, and we hope you’ll join us!
