National Library Week 2008

National Library Week
April 13-19 is National Library Week, a time to celebrate the contributions of all libraries, librarians and library workers along with promoting library use and support.

Many of the San Jose Branch Libraries have been or are being rebuilt. The new libraries have more study areas, teen areas, and cool reading areas, along with an increase in the number of computers. Most libraries in the South Bay now have Wi-Fi access. I noticed a large number of computers available at the Santa Clara City Library along with some nice areas to sit with your laptop computer.

If you have not been to the library in some time, then drop by and visit you local branch. You will find DVDs, CDs, books on tape/CD, and of course, a zillion books.

You may get a library card for any Bay Area library by providing proof that you are a California resident.
