The Garden City Public Library joins libraries in communities in schools, colleges, and communities across the country in celebrating National Library Week from April 13-19, a time to remind the public about the contributions that libraries, librarians, and library workers make to their communities. This year’s theme of National Library Week is "Lives Change @ Your Library."
Service to the community has always been the focus of the Garden City Public Library. While libraries have always served as trusted places where people can access information, the Garden City Public Library has grown and evolved to meet the changing needs of every member of the community. Today’s libraries are more than just book repositories. The Library offers opportunities for children and adults alike to learn, grow, and achieve their dreams by providing access to books and periodicals, eBooks and audiobooks, music CDs and DVDs, workshops, computers, and other informational resources.
Open the door to change - visit your library for materials and services for students and adult lifelong learners. You can access specialized electronic resources, borrow museum passes, and get recommendations on the best books to read. The place to be is @ 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. For more information, visit the Garden City Public Library at 60 Seventh Street or call 516-742-8405.
