Come celebrate National Library Week with us, April 8th through 14th!
This week, Spencer Public Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today's libraries. National Library Week is a time to highlight both the value and the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries are more than repositories for books and other resources. They are more about what they do, for and with library users. Often the heart of their communities, libraries are committed to the places where their patrons live, work, and study. libraries aren't only a place of quiet study, but also trusted, creative, and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community, address local issues, or simply relax.
Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources, including BRIDGES (eBooks and audiobooks), online databases such as Chilton Library (auto repair manuals) and Powerspeak Languages, our online catalog and more! We also offer a wide and growing variety of programs including tween and teen book clubs, movie nights, cooking classes, fan clubs and more.
Libraries are many things to many people. Librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
During National Library Week, we are offering free popcorn afternoons, daily Maker Week programs, an Escape Room, and several fun contests.
