To the editor:
Snyder County Libraries, along with other libraries across the state and country, will be observing National Library week April 8-14.
Libraries have historically served as our nation's great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people.
This National Library Week, join our nation's libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong Today's libraries can help you and your family discover a new and exciting world. It's a great place to spend quality time and connect with your child or loved ones. Take advantage of free access to books and computers, CDs, DVDs, ebooks, Wii games - as well as free programs for all ages.
To celebrate this special occasion, Snyder County Libraries will be offering a variety of activities. Fine Forgiveness for Food will kick off April 8 and continue through April 30. For each item of food (can or boxed) the library will forgive up to $5 in library fines. Don't let fines come between you and the library - donate food and have those fines forgiven. Food will be donated to Five Loaves and Two Fishes Food Bank. Refreshments will be provided each day of the week at our branches for patrons to enjoy.
Bring your child to story time at Selinsgrove on Tuesday at 10 a.m. (Preschool) Wednesday at 10 a.m. (Mother Goose on the Loose) or to Beavertown on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate the library with your child. On Saturday, April 14 we will have a special Family event at 10:30 a.m. - Tea with Peter Rabbit. Peter will be sharing some of his favorite spring stories, songs and activities and then we will have a tea party.
