During National Library Week Monday, April 4th through Saturday, April 9th, the North Manchester Public Library invites you to Connect With Your Library!
North Manchester Public Library encourages all community members to visit their library in person or online to explore and access services and programs during National Library Week. National Library Week is a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week, chosen by the American Library Association, is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology, media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
NMPL will be celebrating with some special social media features, highlighting the library staff, resources, and outreach. During the week, Friends of the Library members will also receive a 15% discount on NMPL’s popular hoodies and sweatshirts. In addition, NMPL has a fun-filled schedule of Spring Break events planned for patrons to enjoy.
“Since National Library Week and Spring Break fall on the same week this year, we’re so excited to go all out with some amazing programs for our families!” shares Molly Magnus, Programming Coordinator.

We’re excited to celebrate that this week.”
