National Library Week: Support Teen Literature Day

NLW14_Blume_728x90

 

This week, the Indian Valley Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study.  Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and re-engage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them.  Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
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.
For more information, visit Indian Valley Public Library at 100 East Church Avenue, call 215-723-9109 or see the library’s Web site at www.ivpl.org.  Libraries hours are Monday-Thursday, 9am-9pm; Friday, 10am-9pm; Saturday, 10am-5pm and Sunday, 1pm-5pm.
