This week, your Abilene Public Library (APL) encourages the community to come visit us in person, or online, to explore and access services and programs. APL offers a wide array of programs, classes, and resources available in person or from the comfort of your own home, including eBooks, digital audiobooks, movies, music, and a great lineup of databases.
April 3-9 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming, resources, and collections. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources, as well as wi-fi access for students and workers, who may lack internet access at home.
This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting your library in person or online, following us on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
