Worlds connect @ your library: celebrate National Library Week at the Cleveland State University Library, April 12-18
It's National Library Week, a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide - and the perfect time to discover how worlds connect @ your library.
The Cleveland State University Library is celebrating National Library Week by having the following display and events:
"Everyday, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities," says Glenda Thornton, Director of the Library. "At our library, people of all backgrounds come together for campus meetings, lectures and programs, to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to find homework help, or just a quiet place to study."
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.
For more information, visit the Cleveland State University Library at 1860 E. 22nd Rhodes Tower, call (216) 687-5300, or see the library's Web site at http://library.csuohio.edu.
