Celebrating National Library Week with LibFest 2014

Last year, Alamance County staff was interested in starting a new program to announce National Library Week 2014. Our libraries wanted to hold a fun, celebratory event while encouraging our community to become users of our resources. It was decided that Alamance County Public Libraries would host the first annual LibFest on April 13, from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m., outside on the lawn of one of the libraries. With less than a month to go, staff is finishing up details and praying for beautiful weather.

Getting Fit @ The Library

What was your New Year’s resolution for 2014? Chances are it involved exercise. One of the most popular goals of the New Year includes living a healthier lifestyle, and at a time when public libraries are seeking to provide innovative programs and classes for the community, offering fitness classes can be a popular way to educate and encourage our patrons to become healthier.
