It’s National Library Week – a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide – and the perfect time for the community to visit the Delray Beach Public Library. This year’s theme is “You Belong @ Your Library.” It is a time to remind all Americans that the library is a place where everyone belongs. Best-selling author Brad Meltzer is the Honorary Chair of National Library Week 2012. Governor Rick Scott has proclaimed April 8 – 14, 2012 as National Library Week in the state of Florida. “Libraries are a cornerstone of Florida’s educational system providing materials and programs for children, families, adults and seniors to enrich their lives and their understanding of the world,” said the Governor.
“Every day, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities,” says Alan Kornblau, Library Director. “At the Delray Beach Public Library, people of all ages and backgrounds can come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to get a job or to find homework help.” For further information visit the Delray Beach Public Library any time or call 561- 266-0194 or visit www.delraylibrary.org.
