National Library Week 2023: There's More to the Story

National Library Week 2023 poster there's more to the story

 

National Library Week 2023, April 23-29, will be celebrated with the theme "There's More to the Story."

Libraries are full of stories in a variety of formats from picture books to large print, audiobooks to eBooks, and more. But there's so much more to the story. Libraries of Things lend items like museum passes, games, musical instruments, and tools. Library programming brings communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, story times, movie nights, crafting classes, and lectures. Library infrastructure advances communities, providing internet and technology access, literacy skills, and support for businesses, job seekers, and entrepreneurs.
