Create your own story!

Digital E-Books. Computer & Internet Access. Job Learning Labs. Statewide Library Cards and Catalog. Did you know these are services most Delaware libraries provide? There are so many reasons to fall in love with your local library and this month is the perfect time to do it.

April is National School Library Month and many libraries will celebrate by promoting the use of innovative as well as traditional services. National Library Week is officially observed next week, April 10-16, and is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA).  The theme this year is “Create Your Own Story @ Your Local Library.” Many Delaware libraries have planned events to coordinate with this theme —check out what’s happening at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library, Laurel Public Library, Appoquinimink Library and North Wilmington Public Library. Activities range from kid-oriented (face painting, magic telling, and interactive storytelling) to adult-focused events, such as an afternoon tea time book discussion, mid-week movie showing, and health focused seminars. Create your own story by checking your local library website to see what events are being planned for you.

And be sure to pick up a book this month – and every month! (See if you’re reading the same thing as Governor Markell and other Delaware leaders.) Stay connected to your Delaware library and all it has to offer through the Division of Libraries blog. Share in the love of reading!
