system to celebrate National Library Week | County life
National Library Week 2022 will take place from April 3-9. This is a time to reflect on the importance of libraries and library workers in communities across our country, and the importance of supporting and defending libraries.
The Halifax County and South Boston Public Library System will celebrate National Library Week with two programs at the South Boston Public Library. The library hasn’t held any indoor programming since the pandemic began in 2020, so the return of indoor programming to libraries will be another reason to celebrate.
On Tuesday, April 5, from 5 to 8 p.m., the South Boston Public Library will host a reading of banned books. Copies of several different books that have been challenged or banned will be available for people to read. Everyone in attendance will receive a “Reading Forbidden Books” sticker. Refreshments will be available from 5 p.m.
On Saturday, April 9 at 11 a.m., author Tierra Bethel will discuss her book, “Let There Be Sound,” in the upstairs meeting room of the South Boston Public Library.
A resident of North Carolina, Bethel earned her undergraduate degree from Virginia Tech and her MBA from Liberty University. Having experienced hearing loss growing up, her book helps individuals understand hearing loss and overcome the misconceptions that surround the condition. Refreshments will be served during this program.
