PALESTINE, Texas (April 3, 2017) – Starting April 9, the Palestine Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries are transforming their communities every day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer.
April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers. Libraries embrace the entire community, offering unlimited opportunities for personal growth and lifelong learning to improve the quality of life for people of all ages.
Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Small business owners, students and the public at large depend upon libraries and the resources they offer. By providing such resources as e-books, technology classes, and materials for English-language learners, libraries and librarians transform their communities.
Libraries also offer something unique to their communities, the expertise of individual librarians. Librarians assist patrons in using increasingly complex technology and sorting through the potentially overwhelming amount of information in today’s digital society.
The Palestine Public Library is celebrating National Library Week by conducting a daily book drawing. Starting Monday, April 3, please drop by the library and submit your name and phone number for a chance to win a book. Three winners will be drawn each day from April 10-13.
