For the week of April 14-20, the Sayreville Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or those to support early literacy, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
The Sayreville Library serves the community of Sayreville by providing not only a collection of books, but also ebooks, career events, computer classes, children's programs, and more!
The Sayreville Library is celebrating National Library Week by featuring an array of events that help showcase the diversity of our children, teen, and adult programming. Be sure to visit our Event Calendar and find out more about our Bollywood Dance Workshops for teens and adults, how you can benefit from online classes and language learning from the library, a series of fun and interactive events for children, and much, much more! There may even be a few surprises throughout the week. Stay tuned!
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.
