The Olean Public Library is celebrating National Library Week this week (April 8-14, 2012). The theme this year is “You belong @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. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate. The honorary chairman of this year’s National Library Week is author and host of the History Channel’s “Decoded” Brad Meltzer.
As part of National Library Week we will be having a trivia contest. Each day, a trivia question will be posted on Facebook, Twitter, sent out to the e-mail list and posted on the wall in the lobby of the library. Answers should be sent to oleanpubliclibrary [at] gmail [dot] com. The following morning the winner will be picked from among the right answers. The winner will receive an Olean Public Library water bottle. There will be a different question each day, so make sure to keep and eye out and good luck!
Also, everyone who signs up for a class or tutoring session this week will receive a gift. If you need to know what classes we are offering this month, click here.
The Olean Public Library would like to thank everyone for their patronage and continued support. Remember – you belong @your library!
