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. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.* It is celebrated April 12th - 18th.
Go and check out your local library. It is full of new places to explore and dead people to meet. You can learn about farts or build a machine. You never know what you will find if you open a book. With the contents of a book you imagination can soar and your adventures will never end. So beware reading is addictive and amazing part of your life.
Librarians do not bite, that we know of, or take prisoners, yet, so say "hello" and ask them about your library. If you are stuck on what book you want to read tell them what you like and they will help you find a wonderful book. Because when it comes to books librarians have a special magic.
