Communities matter @ your library: celebrate National Library Week April 14-20
This week, the Johnston Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
The Johnston Public Library serves Johnston residents by providing a wide range of resources and services including books, movies and music, eBooks, eMagazines, eMusic, language learning databases, informational and entertainment databases, and yearly programming for children, teens and adults that inform, enlighten and delight.
Stop into the Johnston Public Library this week to check out the latest bestseller, learn how to utilize eBooks on your computer, sign up for a program or just say hi to a Johnston Public Library employee. At Johnston Public Library, the Johnston Community is what matters.
