National Library Week

(Libraries, News, Books, Reading, National Media) Permanent link

Happy NLW... …..National Library Week, that is.

National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians. All types of libraries participate – school, public, academic, and special. This year’s theme is “Worlds connect @ your library” for the week April 12 – 18; the honorary chair is best selling author and actress, Jamie Lee Curtis PDF.

Rev Jesse Jackson, president and founder of Rainbow PUSH coalition, will kick off this year’s observance at a reading event. Other events at the national level include the release of the report “The State of America’s Libraries” and “Top 10 Most Challenged Books of 2008,” Tuesday as “National Library Workers Day,” and Thursday as “Support Teen Literature Day.”

KPL will celebrate NLW with the highlight of this year’s “Reading Together” program: author Rick Bragg speaking at Kalamazoo Central High School on Tuesday, April 14, at 6:30.  We have several other programs that week as well…check our calendar.

Help us celebrate….come visit or come to a program. Indeed we can connect you to the world.

this is john,I’m proud of all our programs, but Reading Together is one of my personal favorites. I like to read a book and discuss it with others and that’s exactly what Reading Together is all about me.
