It's Your Library; Check it Out!


It’s National Library Week, April 7th – 13th!  This is an annual celebration, sponsored by the American Library Association, highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. This year’s theme, Libraries = Strong Communities, illustrates how today’s libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools and campuses, providing critical resources, programs and expertise. They also provide a public space where all community members, regardless of age, culture or income level, can come together to connect and learn.

Library programs are designed to encourage community members to meet and discuss civic issues, work together using new technologies or learn alongside one another in English language or technology classes. Library staff also partner with other civic and service organizations to actively engage the people they serve, always striving to make sure their community’s needs are being met.
Join the celebration and stop by the East Troy Lions Public Library: tell us what you like about the library, and we’ll give you a free bookmark! If you don’t have a library card or yours has expired get a new one. Also take a look at the new books, Audio-Books, Playaways, Launchpads, PC games and other items that are available.

The Library is hosting the Book Jar Contest! Adults, Teens, and Kids can come into the Library and pick a slip from the big jar we have on the counter. Your challenge will be to read the book by a suggested Author, and return the slip by the end of April for a chance to win a prize. I encourage you to come in and give it a shot, I think it will be fun and you may discover and like an Author you have never read before.
 
As I am putting this article together, the temperature is 57 degrees and the sun is shining. Easter is around the bend and our Children’s Easter collection is out on display. We have books and DVDs on the season available for the kids! So stop by and check us out, we are your Library!
