National Library Week: April 10 to 16
First celebrated in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries-school, public, academic and special-participate. It's a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and library workers, and to encourage all Americans to take advantage of the resources libraries have to offer.
This year, libraries like NOPL invite you to visit and create your own story at your library. With access to so many kinds of resources and learning available at your library, you really can alter your world with new opportunities and experiences through NOPL.
All libraries in Onondaga County host a National Library Week contest called the "Library Puzzler." Clues placed in libraries try to lead people to discover which character has escaped from which well-know book at which public library in the county. Everyone who submits the correct answers will have a chance to win one of several gift baskets filled with items and gift cards donated by Friends groups and retailers.
Sleuthing is already underway and answers must be submitted no later than April 11. New clues about the character, the book, and the library are released each week, and the winners will be drawn from a hat full of correct answers by April 16.

Bring a 12" paper cutter if you have one and any papers or embellishments you like, and put together a 2-page scrapbooking spread with the help of experts. This is a great way to stay on top of (or more likely, to catch up on) the scrapbooking you always intend to do. No cost.
