National Library Week (April 4 — 10, 2021) is a time to celebrate our nation’s libraries, library workers’ contributions and promote library use and support.

The theme for National Library Week 2021 is “Welcome to Your Library.”

During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities’ demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users’ needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning. ~ALA

“Welcome to Your Library!” Stop by this week, get a library card and check out your library!

I would like to take this time to thank the wonderful Library Ladies at John L. Street Library. Kim is Technical Services, Ms. Katie is Children’s Librarian, Breanna, Mady, Carlee and Chastity are desk clerks, Maddison is our student worker. They all do a wonderful job and I am very proud of all of them.

Pam’s Pick this week is: “Her Dark Lies” by J.T. Ellison, this is the story of the wealthy Compton family. Claire disregards messages from an anonymous texter who claims her fiancé is not the man he claims to be. Claire travels to Italy for her destination wedding. After getting there a few accidents threaten to expose old family secrets. Maybe the texter was right.
