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.

Celebrate National Library Week

Libraries around the country will celebrate National Library Week April 14-20, 2013. The theme is “Communities Matter @ Your Library” and Caroline Kennedy is the honorary chair. National Library Week was first sponsored by the American Library Association in 1958 to encourage people to support and use libraries.
