Celebrate National Library Week April 23-29, 2023

(04/19/2023) – The Warren-Trumbull County Public Library (W-TCPL) joins with libraries nationwide in celebrating April 23-29, 2023, as National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities.

This year’s National Library Week theme of “There’s More to the Story” invites all community members to visit the library to explore.

Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from picture books and large print to audiobooks and ebooks. But there’s so much more to the story of libraries. Libraries are welcoming spaces that bring communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, classes, lectures, and more.

Library cardholders can download and enjoy digital content such as e-books and e-audiobooks and digital movies and music on their personal smartphone, tablet, or eReader at no cost through dedicated apps or through the library website. The library also provides a variety of online resources to support students, job seekers, and small businesses. Online learning platforms accessible through the library website feature thousands of videos and tutorials covering topics such as computers and software; adult learning; homework resources; business and marketing; genealogy research; health and consumer information; and much more.

Internet-accessible computers are available for public use at the library, and free Wi-Fi access, scanning, and outgoing FAXing are also available.

Kelly Yang, bestselling author of many books for young readers, is honorary chair of National Library Week for 2023.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.

If you haven’t checked out the W-TCPL lately, you’re missing the full story. Stop by for a visit during National Library Week or anytime!

The W-TCPL system includes libraries in Brookfield, Cortland, Howland, Liberty, Lordstown, and Warren; a Bookmobile; and Library-By-Mail service.
