Celebrate National Library Week, April 14-20, by using — and helping — your public library. Get a library card and enjoy its privileges — check out movies, books, magazines, recorded books and e-books, use a high-speed library computer, find technical and research guidance, enjoy a book club discussion, join the Friends of the Library. Participate in year-round educational and entertaining activities, while your young children, school-age children and teens can have fun at story time, crafts and special events.
Through the library’s county-wide literacy program, Placer Adult Literacy Service, known as PALS, adults — working confidentially, one-on-one, with trained coaches — can learn to read, or improve their reading and writing skills. It’s all free —at the library.
Libraries lift up and sustain our communities. You can help: Donate books, DVDs and CDs; volunteer to help in the library, or volunteer to teach an adult to read. Make a generous tax-deductible donation. And let your elected officials know that you love your library.
