It's National Library Week

Did I fail to mention this is National Library Week?  It is and it is from April 14 to April 20th.  It is time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries.  They even have a theme and this year it is “Communities matter @ your library,"

So stop by check out a book

use the computer

watch a DVD,

and more

all those things you can do at the Delmar Library.

Altho President Obama issues a White House Proclamation for every odd ball group out there I see once again none for National Library Week, therefore, I Howard will once again issue my own proclamation for National Library Week.

National Library Week 2013 Proclamation

WHEREAS, libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge by providing free access to all;

WHEREAS, libraries work to meet the changing needs of their users, including building print and electronic collections, expanding outreach services and increasing programming;

WHEREAS, our nation’s libraries provide a forum for diverse ideas and points of view that help us better understand each other and ourselves;

WHEREAS, librarians are trained professionals, helping people of all ages and backgrounds find and interpret the information they need to live, learn and work in a challenging economy;

WHEREAS, librarians design and offer programs and courses to develop research, information literacy, and related technology and learning skills;

WHEREAS, libraries are part of the American dream, places for education, opportunity and lifelong learning;

WHEREAS, libraries, librarians, library workers and supporters across America are celebrating National Library Week, April 14-20, 2013, with the theme of “Communities matter @ your library,"

NOW, THEREFORE, be it resolved that I, Howard, Blog Owner Of The Delmar Dustpan, proclaim National Library Week @ Delmar, April 14=20, 2013. I encourage everyone in the Delmar community to take advantage of the many resources and services available at the Delmar Library. I also encourage everyone to thank the entire Library staff whose expertise and dedication make the Delmar Library a Library of distinction.
