Libraries strengthen their communities: celebrate National Library Week April 7-13

Libraries=Strong Communities

This week, Penrose Library joins libraries of all types in celebrating the many ways libraries build strong communities by providing critical resources, programs and expertise.

April 7-13, 2019 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Libraries are at the heart of their cities, towns, schools and campuses. They have public spaces where people of all backgrounds can come together and connect.

Penrose Library helps lead our community by fostering the intellectual engagement and scholarly practice of the Whitman community. We curate and provide access to diverse and unique collections, and teach the skills and concepts needed to navigate complex information environments at Whitman and beyond.

There’s no better time than #NationalLibraryWeek to share what you love about your library. Use #MyLibraryMyStory in your post for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card. Promotion starts April 7 at noon CT and ends April 13 at noon CT. https://bit.ly/2EgEGyy
