Once a year, we take time to celebrate libraries and the wonderful staff who work there. This year, National Library Week takes place April 23- 29. 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. This year will be celebrated with the theme, “There’s More to the Story!”
Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from picture books, large print books, audiobooks, and ebooks, to magazines, movies, and video games. But there’s so much more to the story of libraries. Libraries are welcoming spaces that bring communities together for entertainment, education, and connection for all ages through programs like book clubs, storytimes, arts and crafting, hands-on learning, lectures, and technology classes. Prescott Public Library also offers a variety of nonbook items for check out in the Library of Things, including wi-fi hotspots, culture passes, hiking kits, telescopes, a seed library, and more!
If you haven’t checked out Prescott Public Library lately, you’re missing the full story. Stop by for a visit to celebrate with us during National Library Week, April 23-29, and take part in our library scavenger hunt, bring your kids to meet Peter Rabbit at one of our storytimes, or visit us (and Peter Rabbit!) at the Prescott Farmer’s Market on Saturday, April 29.
