National Library Week 2017

170328_PAO_NLW17_LT-Insta-shareHappy National Library Week!  NLW runs from Sunday, April 9th through the 15th.  Today’s libraries are not just about what we have for people, but what we do for and with people.  This year’s NLW theme is #LibrariesTransform and the Sullivan Library has embraced it by spreading the campaign around the library with “Because” statements.


Contribute to our “Expert” wall near the circulation where you can fill out an “Expert in the library” badge.  Are you an expert in the library? What are librarians experts in?  Share your badge in person on our wall!


Also share your message on social media!  Everyone who posts to Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #expertinthelibrary between Saturday, April 8 at noon CT and Saturday, April 15 at noon CT will be entered in a random drawing for the chance to a $100 gift card.   Check out ilovelibraries.org for more details.
