The Clearview Library District will celebrate National Library Week April 4-10. This week is a dedicated time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities.
The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Whether people visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery, and exploration.
During these challenging times, libraries of all types have been going above and beyond to adapt to the changing world by expanding resources and continuing to meet the needs of patrons. The Clearview Library District supports the community with services, such as virtual programming that include take-home kits, curbside checkouts, virtual reading suggestions, mobile hotspots, and streaming of digital materials.
This week, the Clearview Library District encourages all community members to visit its website to explore and access virtual services and programs. The district offers a wide array of online resources that are available from the comfort of home; visit https://clearviewlibrary.org/downloads--streaming for more information.
Community members can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting the library’s website, following the library on social media (Facebook: Clearview Library District, Instagram: @clearviewlibrary), and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
