Libraries across the country will be celebrating National Library Week this week, April 8-14, 2012. We haven't made any special plans, bur we do ask you to consider some things. Is your library card up-to-date? This little card gives you access to thousands of things, including books, databases, museum passes, Universal Classes, Internet, interlibrary loans, movies, downloads, music, and more. Chances are if you are reading this you have an active library card, but do me a favor and ask your siblings, your neighbor, or your coworker if they use their public library. Library cards are FREE, and only about 1/3 of the people in our area have them!
We would like your feedback, including ideas for purchases, programming, and plans for the future. You can use the FEEDBACK button on our home page WindsorLocksLibrary.org, comment on our blog, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, call us at 860-627-1495, or stop in and talk to us. Your ideas are important to us and we encourage you to share them year-round, but this week would be an especially good time to let us know how we are doing and how we can be a better library for you! If someone doesn't use the library we are interested in why and how we can change that.
I think that National Library Week is a good time to celebrate what really makes libraries great: not just the books and technology or the programs or the staff, but the people who utilize them. You are the reason that we are here. Thank you for your support!
