Transform your ideas about the library: celebrate National Library Week April 10-16
(LINCOLN, ILLINOIS) –This week, the McKinstry Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more about what they do, for and with library users as opposed to what they have for patrons. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use do college-level research, or just relax. Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources, including over 30 scholarly article databases, a special Lincoln and Civil War print collection, and over 3,000 academic ebooks that can be accessed in person or online.
The McKinstry Library is celebrating National Library Week by with its first-ever Book Sale on April 14, from 1pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm.
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.
