Unlimited possibilities @ your library: celebrate National Library Week -- Apr. 12 to Apr. 18
During the second week of April, the Clayton State Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than warehouses for books. Instead, libraries and librarians are change agents within their communities – transforming lives through innovative educational resources and forward-thinking programming.
The Clayton State Library serves Clayton State University by providing access to printed and electronic material that supports the academic interests of students and faculty. In addition, the library provides resources that support patrons’ extracurricular interests and hobbies.
“The library has always been a place of unlimited possibilities,” says Gordon Baker, Clayton State dean of Libraries. “Whatever your interest or need, the library and the library staff are here to provide you the resources you need to accomplish your goals and dreams.”
The Clayton State University Library is celebrating National Library Week by highlighting craft and design resources and offering patrons an opportunity to create a library keepsake of their own. Supplies and instructions for the craft project will be available in the library during National Library Week.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
