Libraries are places for new beginnings. Whether you are getting your first library card, learning new computer skills or planning a trip, the library is the place where your story begins.
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.
Shawnee State University's Clark Memorial Library is celebrating the week, April 10 – 16, in collaboration with the Portsmouth Public Library. During the celebration everyone is invited to participate by writing a story about their experiences with libraries.
"Every day, libraries across the country are helping people create their own unique stories," said Connie Stoner, director. "Whether it is by opening a book and exploring distant lands, or by learning how to use new technologies to find a job, people at our library are creating new stories for themselves."
This National Library Week, join our nation's libraries and librarians and Create your own story @ your library.® Send your story about your experiences with libraries to Connie Stoner, Director, Clark Memorial Library, Shawnee State University, 940 Second Street, Portsmouth, OH 45662.
