“Connect with Your Library”: Griffin-Spalding Participates in National Library Week | News
GRIFFIN – During the first week of April, the Griffin-Spalding County Library encourages all members of the community to visit their library in person or online to explore and access services and programs, according to a statement.
The Griffin-Spalding County Library offers a wide range of programs, classes, and resources available in person or from the comfort of home, including a variety of story times at the library, Fairmont Community Center, Airport Road Park, at the Healthy Living Community Garden and online.
There are also craft programs, chess and knitting clubs and appointments available to receive free legal help or meet with a social services intern to help you find local assistance.
National Library Week is April 3-9, a time to highlight the vital role that libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities.
The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect to Your Library”, which promotes the idea that libraries are places to connect to technology using broadband, computers and other resources, according to a statement.
Libraries also provide opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas, and courses, in addition to books. More importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming, resources, and collections.
Across the country, libraries are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources like Wi-Fi access to students and workers who may not have Internet access at home.
The Griffin-Spalding County Library supports the community with services, such as Chromebooks and hotspots to check out, access to online tutorials and practice tests through LearningExpress Library, and access to Grow with Google digital skills training.
This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library in person or online, following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
