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:

  • National Library Week Display-all week. Find out more information about the Library and enter to win prizes such as gift cards, library goody bags, and more.
  • Book Sale on Monday, April 13th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first floor of the Library,
  • Friends Local Authors Book Talk Series featuring Kristin Ohlson, co-author of Kabul Beauty School: An American Woman Goes Behind the Veil, on Wednesday, April 15th at 3 p.m. in RT 503,
  • "Passport to the World", an event featuring materials from the CSU Library, Cleveland Public Library, the Study Abroad Program, and food from around the world on April 16th at noon on the first floor of the Library.

"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 https://library.csuohio.edu.
