The Winder Public Library is inviting community members to “find the library at their place” by visiting the website https://prlib.org to access virtual services and resources.
While the library’s physical spaces are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the public can discover eBooks, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, digital newspapers, ancestry searches, get a library card and much more — all from home, leaders say.
April 19-25 is National Library Week, “a time to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities,” leaders say. “This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library’s website, following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.”
The original theme for National Library Week, “Find your place at the library,” was chosen months ago before the emergence of the global pandemic forced libraries to close their buildings. The theme was revised to “Find the library at your place” to bring attention to how libraries are open for business online, offering the electronic services and digital content their communities need now more than ever, leaders say.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries of all types across the country each April.
