The Seattle Public Library celebrates National Library Week April 8-14
Celebrate National Library Week April 8-14 by visiting the world-renowned Central Library or any of The Seattle Public Library's 26 branches! Check out a DVD or music CD, explore the vast online resources, or talk to a Library staff member about book recommendations.
National Library Week 2012, with the theme, "You belong @ your library," celebrates libraries and library workers nationwide.
Nearly 12 million books and materials were circulated and over 14 million people visited The Seattle Public Library last year. Now is the perfect time to get a Library card if you don't have one. Library card applications are available in person at all Library locations and online at www.spl.org.
In addition to books, materials and access to many online databases and journals, the Library hosts over 400 programs per month for children, teens and adults, including story times, author readings and more.
"Having a Library card gives you access to all the free services and resources the Library has to offer - like homework help for students, job search assistance for the unemployed, computer classes for ESL students and more," City Librarian Marcellus Turner said. "You don't even need to visit our buildings to receive help. Chat and email services and a mobile app are also available."
The American Library Association has sponsored National Library Week in April annually since 1958.
