National Library Week (April 8- 14, 2018) is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to library business centers that help support entrepreneurship and retraining, libraries offer opportunity to all. The theme for 2018 National Library Week is "Libraries Lead," and American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Misty Copeland will serve as 2018 National Library Week Honorary Chair.
National Library Week 2018 will mark the 60th anniversary of the first event, sponsored in 1958. This national celebration is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate every year in National Library Week.
During National Library Week, all branches of the Beauregard Parish Library will offer Fresh Picked Reads, grab and go bags of library goodies available for check out. Pick up a bag, check out the items inside and be on your way in moments! The Fresh Picked Reads are a perfect solution for those who only have a little time to swing by their library and those who just want to try something new. We hope you enjoy your Fresh Picked Reads from our garden of ideas!
