Sauk Valley Community College’s Library along with public libraries throughout the area will celebrate National Library Week from Monday, April 17 through Friday, April 17. This year’s theme is “communities thrive @your library.”

National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide. Libraries are the heart of every community and our libraries help our communities thrive. At our libraries, people of all backgrounds come together for community meetings, lectures and programs, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to get help finding a job or to find homework help.

Sauk takes pride in offering the finest academic library in the region. Open to Sauk students, faculty and the public, Sauk’s library features unrestricted access to Internet-networked computers more than 75,000 book titles, research databases, a large CD collection, a children’s section, and much more. During the summer library hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

National Library Week is a national observance first sponsored in 1958 by the American Library Association (ALA). It is observed by libraries across the country each April.
