You belong @ your library® this National Library Week, April 8-14                                                          
(STUART, FL) – Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to land a new job, a parent looking for free activities for children or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong @ your library.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people.  Libraries provide cultural heritage and genealogical collections, materials in print and electronic formats, job seeking resources, English as second language and citizenship classes and many other creative and resourceful programs.

Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people. This National Library Week, join our nation’s libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong.

Did you know that you can learn a foreign language, get the latest health, business and investment information, access study aids, find a newspaper, magazine or journal article, research your family history or troubleshoot an auto repair with online electronic resources @ your library? 

Find out more when you celebrate National Library Week with the Martin County Library System by stopping by any Martin County library on Saturday, April 14, and enjoy a piece of cake served by the Friends of Martin County Libraries. Staff will be prepared to show you how “you belong @ your library” by offering our many services. Cake will be served from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

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.

Let the Martin County Library System guide you to discover how, more than ever, you belong @ your library.
