Published 3:09 pm Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Libraries are places for new beginnings. Whether you are getting your first library card, learning new computer skills or planning a trip, the library is the place where your story begins. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians and create your own story at your library.

The Polk County Public Library will display balloons and flowers to create a celebratory atmosphere. A special library-themed story time will be held by Miss Joy and the bookmobile will have an “open house” April 13 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. School children will be encouraged to make a special trip to the library this week.

Both the Saluda and Columbus locations will be displaying new promotions, resources, DVD and book acquisitions. Stop by and meet the new library director, Cindy Nanney.

“Every day, libraries across the country are helping people create their own unique stories,” says, Tracey Daniels, community relations specialist for the PCPL. “Whether it is by opening a book and exploring distant lands, or by learning how to use new technologies to find a job, people at our library are creating new stories for themselves.”

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.
