Strengthening the community: Kling celebrates National Library Week

Libraries are more than just a place to simply check out a book; they’re a public space where the community can come together to learn, grow, connect and meet. Libraries today are the heart of a strong community.

 

In honor of National Library Week from April 7 through 13, Kling Memorial Library joins a nationwide celebration of the many ways libraries act as a driving force in their communities; whether it’s through inspirational and informative programming, education for all ages, indispensable services to the community, outreach, and leadership.

 

The theme for this year’s National Library Week is ‘Libraries = Strong Communities.’

 

“We’re always thinking of ways we can better serve and support the community with things they want and need,” says Kling Library Director Lindsey Engelkes. “We want the library to be a resource that inspires people, and helps them grow and continue to learn, no matter how young or old. We want to connect people and give them that Third Space in the community where they can meet and connect with their fellow community members.”
