National Library Week

It’s National Library Week! Celebrate all week long with fun events and giveaways at your local library.

Monday April 5th, the American Library Association will be releasing their State of America’s Libraries report.

Tuesday, April 6th is Library Workers Day. Thank your favorite librarians and library staff during your visit to the library!

Wednesday, April 7th is Outreach Day. Share with us on social media your memories and favorite stories of your visit to the Lackawanna County Library System Bookmobile.

Thursday, April 8th is Take Action for Libraries Day. This important day is dedicated to making sure funding for libraries are not cut or reduced.

The pandemic made it clear that libraries play an essential role to help our community stay socially connected, informed, and healthy. You can take action by calling your representative and tell them to keep funding for libraries; share the library’s posts on social media; or make a donation to the library of your choice.
