To the Editor:
This week, libraries, schools, campuses and communities across the country celebrate National Library Week (April 11-17), a time to remind the public about the contribution libraries, librarians and library workers make to their communities every day.
In today's tough economy, libraries offer free resources to help people find jobs and learn new skills. People of all ages and backgrounds find entertainment, develop skills and come to find their place in the community. People gather for book discussions, for storytime or to volunteer or look for volunteer work. North Dakota libraries help our communities thrive.
What makes the library unique is access to trained professionals - librarians - to help people find and interpret the information they need to make a difference in their lives. North Dakota libraries also help keep us connected, providing a space for people of all ages to come together, while keeping us connected to events and people around the world.
How can the library help you thrive? Visit your library this National Library Week to find out!
