National Library Week, April 4thh - 10th, 2021
National Library Week was first sponsored in 1958. It is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April. It is a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to your library,” which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Whether people visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery and exploration.
The Worthington Jefferson Township Public Library is celebrating all month long. Each time you come into the library during the month of April to check-out materials, the staff will submit your name into a drawing for a $50.00 Visa gift card. If you become a new member by signing up for a library card, you will receive two entries. Two gift cards will be awarded at the end of the month, one for patrons who are age 5-18, and the other for patrons who are 19 and older.
If you are signing up for a new card, you will need to go to the Greene County library that represents your township in which you live. If you have any questions, please contact the library at 812-875-3815.
