NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK APRIL 4-10

April 4-April 10 is NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK!

This weeklong celebration started in 1958, and is a time to acknowledge the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to encourage library use and support.
The theme for National Library Week this year is “Welcome to Your Library,” and promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services.
On Tuesday April 6, National Library Workers Day, WCL will host a reception with refreshments for all, outside by our picnic tables from 10AM to 12PM. Stop at the library to show your appreciation and recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.
If you can’t make it on Tuesday, Thursday April 8 is Take Action for Libraries Day, a perfect time to stop at the library and sign up to volunteer. On this day we will be outside by the picnic tables, signing up people for library cards and recruiting new Friends and volunteers.
The new Friends of WCL steering committee was formed in January, has established a mission statement and is working on bylaws, but we need more help.
The Friends of WCL supports the library through advocacy, volunteer services, and fundraising to provide educational and cultural growth.
If you are interested in helping promote our mission, stop in and sign up to take action for your community library, either now or on April 8.
