Here are a few things you can do to celebrate National Library week.
- Share your library story in 17 syllables and 140 characters. Enter the National Library Week twaiku contest - tweet a twaiku (Twitter haiku) about your love of libraries. Details here. Today is the deadline so act fast! I entered. "A welcoming place/ All things good, together/ Home, your library"
- Enter the Why I Need my Library Teen Video Contest. (for teens - ends on April 18)
- Visit ilovelibraries.org and see how you can help your library
- Visit your library
- Many libraries are threatened with budget or staffing cuts. If you love your library, tell your friends, write the newspaper, blog it, tweet it, post it! (and, oh yeah, you can tell your librarian, too!)
So what are you waiting for? Visit your library today!
