National Library Week 2009

National Library Week 2009
National Library Week, April 12 – 18, a time to celebrate the contributions of all libraries, librarians and library workers along with promoting library use and support.

If you have not been to the library in some time, then drop by and visit you local branch where you will find DVDs, CDs, books on tape/CD, and of course, a zillion books. Most libraries in the South Bay now have Wi-Fi access.

During National Library Week the San Jose Public Library and Santa Clara County Library systems are hosting a visit by the Digital Bookmobile as part of its national tour promoting the library’s digital media collection and download website. With instructional videos and interactive computer stations, readers of all ages will experience new ways to enjoy digital books and more from the public library.

Digital Bookmobile visits:

Thursday, April 16 – Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Library, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
Friday, April 17 – Saratoga Library, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Saturday, April 18 – Morgan Hill Library, 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

For those of you in Castro Valley, during National Library Week whenever a customer purchases an item at participating stores and restaurants, and either shows you a library card or says that they are a library supporter, stores and shops will donate $.25 to the Alameda County Library Foundation. Your donation will go directly to the Campaign for the New Castro Valley Library.

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