Lives change @ your library: Celebrate National Library Week April 13-19
This week, the Napoleon 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 reengage 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 community’s 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.
Napoleon Public Library will be CLOSED Friday, April 11, so staff can attend a Library Conference as an in-service day. Napoleon Public Library will CLOSE EARLY at 5:30 on Thursday, April 17, and will be CLOSED Friday, April 18, and Saturday, April 19, in observance of the Easter Weekend.
Napoleon Public Library is hosting a Rainbow Loom Class on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at 10:00 A.M. So swing by and enjoy some loopy fun. In this hour long session, kids share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the new exciting craft of Rainbow Loom!
Bring your own loom and supplies. Whatever level of looming you are, you can share what you know or learn from someone else. Kids teach kids in this fun, free form, instructional program.
Grades 2 and up are welcome to participate. If you have an extra loom, please bring it with you!
Registration is required to participate in this program.
