National Library Week 2010


National Library Week, April 11 – 17, a time to celebrate the contributions of all libraries, librarians and library workers along with promoting library use and support. This year’s theme: “Communities thrive @ your library.”

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.

San Jose Public Library and San Jose State University Library announced a contest celebrating the activity of library users that make their collaboration the number one ranked library in per capita usage among libraries in the nation’s 10 largest cities. San Jose library users are invited to go online beginning April 12 and enter their best guess as to when the system’s materials checkout count will reach 100 million. The contest ends at 6:00 p.m. on April 30.

During National Library Week the Santa Clara City Library has some special events at the library for kids, families, and teens. Events include: Preschool Science Workshop with Mad Science of the Bay Area “Animal Friends”, Randel McGee and Groark (live program for ages 4 and older), and Teen Movie and Pizza.

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