   National Library Week

April 13-19, 2014


    Since 1958, National Library Week (NWL) has been a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.


National Library Workers Day, celebrated Tuesday, April 14, is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.

This year’s theme is “Lives Change @ Your Library.” For more information on this or on the American Library Association, check out:

   As always the March Book Sale sponsored by Friend of the Library was a success. Monies raised in the sale of used books, videos, puzzles, etc., go to support the McCord Memorial Library. The sale raised about $2,000!


Thank you to everyone who made donations for the sale and/or purchased items! We would also like to whole-heartedly thank everyone who assisted before, during and after the sale. It was everyone’s help and generosity that made the sale a success!

Thank you.
