Transform your ideas about the library: celebrate National Library Week April 9-15

The Meherrin Regional Library System joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries are transforming their communities every day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer.

April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians, and library workers.  Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies.

Libraries of all types are evolving to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Elected officials, small business owners, students, and the public at large depend upon libraries and the resources they offer to address the needs of their communities. By providing such resources as e-books and computer assistance, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers, or a safe haven in times of crisis, libraries and librarians transform their communities.

The Meherrin Regional Library System is transforming by providing computers, printers, WIFI, and copy services in addition to the books, movies, and magazines available to check out. The library offers weekly storytimes and Summer Reading Programs, as well as meeting room spaces. The Meherrin Regional Library’s friendly staff is there to guide and assist the library patrons who visit each day.

Libraries also offer something unique to their communities - the expertise of individual librarians. Librarians assist patrons in using increasingly complex technology and sorting through the potentially overwhelming mass of information bombarding today’s digital society. This is especially crucial when access to reliable and trustworthy data is more important than ever.

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. 

 

To learn more about your local library, visit the Brunswick County Library, Lawrenceville or the Richardson Memorial Library, Emporia or the library’s Web site at www.meherrinlib.org.

A library card is the coolest card – September is Library Card Sign-up Month

Today’s libraries are about more than books. They are creative educational spaces for learners from birth to high school and beyond. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Meherrin Regional Library System joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.

Librarians provide important resources to families whose children are at the earliest stages of development, by teaching parents and caregivers the components of early literacy which help children develop the basic tools for school readiness. As of 2010, libraries in the United States offered more than 2.3 million children’s programs, which account for nearly two thirds of all library programming.

Older students can access high-speed Internet, digital tools and the opportunity to work with trained professionals on how to use them. Librarians provide guided training in digital media and grow digital literacy skills. Libraries also provide equity of access to digital tools and media, which has become increasingly important in high-poverty areas where students are less likely to have a computer or internet access in the home. 

Libraries are also a training ground for students of all ages to expand their knowledge and explore creative pursuits. The development of makerspaces is just one way libraries are seeking to meet this demand, ranging from low-tech, hands-on engineering opportunities for children and teens using toys and kits to the incorporation of high-tech tools like laser cutters and 3D printers.

Resources at the Brunswick County Library and Richardson Memorial Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement.

For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Brunswick County Library in Lawrenceville, or the Richardson Memorial Library in Emporia, or visit the library online at www.meherrinlib.org.
