The American Library Assn. has declared April 10-16 National Library Week. Happy National Library Week, everyone!
As libraries have faced budget cutbacks nationwide, National Library Week is a time when they can be the focus of positive attention. They’re holding a haiku contest on Twitter -- some call it Twaiku -- and celebrating bookmobiles on Wednesday and teen literature on Thursday.
Today, Tueday, is National Library Workers Day -- a time to thank librarians and the rest of the library staff. And for this writer, that means saying, ‘Thanks, Mom!’
It’s true, my mom was a librarian -- a reference librarian at the University of Rhode Island.
