It's #NationalLibraryWeek and we want to share some of our successes with you!
In the past year, we have had:
2,055,021 in-person visits to Sonoma County Library locations.
2,730,049 items circulated.
2,304,587 online visits to http://sonomalibrary.org
113,139 attendance at library events.
Our library, like many across the country, offers UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES to the people of Sonoma County -- both during National Library Week and year-round.
Join us to celebrate the week of APRIL 7-13. Libraries across the nation are bringing communities together as new technologies continue to change the world around us. No longer just places for books, libraries provide resources that reflect the needs of the communities they serve. If you haven't visited us in a while, what better time to check out all the Sonoma County Library has to offer!
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.
National Library Workers Day (NLWD) will take place on Tuesday, April 14. It is a day to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers. The American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA), the organization for the advancement of library employees, annually sponsors National Library Workers Day. The ALA-APA invites the public to "Submit a Star" by providing a testimonial about a favorite library employee here.
