Libraries Lead: National Library Week 2018


 Where did the library lead you?

This week, the St. Johns County Public Library System joins libraries nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries lead their communities through the transformative services, programs and expertise they offer.

April 8-14 is National Library Week, an annual celebration of the life-changing work of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries aren’t just places to borrow books or study—they’re also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies and develop their skills and passions.

“The library helps lead our community by advocating for widespread access to crucial services and life long learning,” said Library System Director Debra Rhodes Gibson. “Libraries level the playing field for people of any age who seek information and access to technologies to improve their quality of life.”

SJCPLS is celebrating National Library Week by hosting a wide variety of special programs for kids, teens and adults. For a complete listing of all of the National Library Week events scheduled @ your library, visit our online events calendar.

The library also invites patrons to participate in our “Where did the library lead you?” social media promotion for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card and a copy of Firebird, the Coretta Scott King Award-winning book by Misty Copeland, 2018 National Library Week Honorary Chair.

Library lovers can post to Twitter, Instagram, or on the I Love Libraries Facebook page during National Library Week for a chance to win. Entries can be a picture, video, or text. Creativity is encouraged. Just be sure to include the hashtags #NationalLibraryWeek and #LibrariesLead on your social media post for a chance to win. Join in the fun! The promotion begins Sunday, April 8 at noon CT and ends Saturday, April 14 at noon CT.

Join us for a great week celebrating how Libraries Lead!
