This is our week to celebrate – its National Library Week!
NLW, as it is known in the library world, was first observed in 1958. It is sponsored by the American Library Association as a celebration of the contributions of our country’s libraries and librarians, and to promote library use and support.
The first year’s theme was “Wake Up and Read!”….still a good message, 53 years later.
This year’s is “Create Your Own Story @ Your Library.”
We’ve been collecting “your stories” for several years and we’d like to add yours to our collection. There are about 50 on our website and room for yours too. Think about your best library memory, how a library book changed your life, what you’ve learned at the library, how library staff have helped you, then share it with us. It can be from any library that has been important to you, not just KPL.
Your story might introduce someone else to a library service, inspire them to read a particular book, remind them of the importance of reading to children.
We’ve love to hear your story and happy National Library Week to you!
