National Library Week - Activities for kids

It's National Library Week, and time to "Create your own story @ your library!" I know our public library is hosting several events this week to celebrate and I'm sure your library has something similar planned. Make sure to take time out of your schedule this week and stop by your library. And, if you happen to visit today on National Library Workers Day (April 12), be sure to thank the librarians and staff for the work they do to provide you all those wonderful library resources!
