"Give a hand and lend an ear to your community during National Library Week this spring. The 2013 theme, Communities Matter @ your library, invites your local campus, school, and business communities to discover your library as a hub for engaging in creative comversations about the community's needs. Take this special week to show that your library is so much more than a repository of resources - that it's the place for discussion that can enrich, shape and transform your community."
During National Library Week, children are invited to enter the Design a Bookmark contest for the Summer Reading Program. This contest is open to children in grades K-5 and one winner will be chosen from each grade. Winning bookmarks will be selected in May and will be printed and distributed during the 2013 Summer Reading Program.
Come to the Library during National Library Week and enter the Library Card Contest by guessing how many cards are in a jar at the Main Desk. Winners will receive free DVD rentals.
National Library Week is the perfect time to find your place in the community and be sure to ask for the handout, Fifty Ways to Use Your Library to discover what your community library can do for you!
Come by your Oak Ridge Public Library and enjoy the numerous activities planned during National Library Week!
