National Library Week and Santa come but once a year, but like the sunrise and the Potomac’s tides, Arlington Public Library is here for you on a daily basis.
So permit us to ask: What keeps you coming back to the Library–be it a book club, a collection, a children’s program, a specific room, a research database, a downloadable or even one of our gardens? Please leave your responses in the comments area below.
And since April 15 is National Library Workers Day, feel free to name names if you have a favorite staff person or volunteer who never fails to make your Library experience a flawless one.
And if you agree that libraries are an essential part of your community and a democratic society, you’ll want to sign the Declaration for the Right to Libraries.
Although not written by our Virginia neighbor Mr. Jefferson, he would clearly be in support of this new Declaration. As he said, “A library book lasts as long as a house, for hundreds of years. It is not then an article of mere consumption but fairly of capital.”
So enjoy your Library 52 weeks a year or, if you prefer, for hundreds of years to come.
We’ll be here.
