“Libraries are the heart of every community and our library helps our community thrive,” says Lisa Gugliotti, Reference Librarian. “At our library, people of all backgrounds come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to do research, to get help finding a job or to find homework help, or to read current magazines and relax.”

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.

See you at the library!
