National Library Week – April 13-19, 2008


What is more important in a library than anything else –

than everything else — is the fact that it exists.

~Archibald MacLeish, “The Premise of Meaning,” American Scholar, 5 June 1972

It’s National Library Week

This year, National Library Week marks its 50th anniversary with the theme “Join the circle of knowledge @ your library.” All types of libraries — school, public, academic and special — participate.  National Library Week is sponsored by ALA (American Library Association) and libraries across the country to honor the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.  

On Thursday, April 17, the BSC Library will host an open house celebration from 10 a.m. to noon.  At 10:30 a.m., we will unveil our newly refurbished card catalog display and also honor Dr. Wayne Boekes, who recognized its value and helped us with funding for the project.  

Stop by to see the display and to enjoy some refreshments with us.
