Grove Public Library preps for book sale fundraiser

Libraries are also community centers where people can collaborate.

National Library Week is in full swing across the country. It will be facilitated by Joshua Gellers, assistant professor of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration, and Lauren Newton, Head of Instruction at the library.

National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers, and to promote library use and support. The program is designed for kids kindergarten through fifth grade.

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. Flipping through those pages and seeing the technology, the wisdom, the growth of humanity and the history that makes us who we are, it really makes us appreciate not just the ancient Chamorro's as you see portrayed on that painting behind you, but all the other beauty tapestry that makes our world what it is. "I'm looking forward to seeing how our partnership grows in the future", said Nickel.

Among the most controversial of the projects involves the downtown library, where a library community advisory panel voted in January to recommend the city, using primarily 2016's Measure S taxpayer-approved $67 million in bond proceeds, build a new library as part of a city parking garage structure. And believe me, they're fun for adults as well!

"That year we were able to purchase Spanish material for children and that has been successful", she said. Now, I know that the libraries have so many different programs for all different ages. "It's been a goal for many years", said Cooper. "For example, the library in La Selva Beach has a sand castle-building thing in the summer".

Events like these which are offered by public libraries help strengthen local communities, said library executive director Amy Rinehart of the celebration, which bears the theme "Libraries Lead".

The new session will run from April 18, through May 23.
