Celebrate National Library Week  – April 14-19, 2014, with the theme Lives change @ your library.  First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. During this time, Louis T.
