Hooray for National Library Week!
Pacific Park Branch Librarian, Katherine Loeser, accepted a National Library Week (NLW) proclamation from Glendale City Councilman Bob Yousefian at City Hall on Tuesday.
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. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate. This year's theme is Join the Circle of Knowledge @ Your Library.
Some fun NLW videos have been made capturing the humorous side of working in libraries. Here's one that captures the experience of working at the Reference Desk in "Anytown, USA."
