This week, Rogers Public Library encourages all community members to visit their library in person or online to explore and access services and programs. Rogers Public Library offers a wide array of programs and resources that are available in person or from the comfort of home, including hoopla, Library2Go, LinkedIn Learning and more.
April 3-9, 2022 is National Library Week, 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 is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming, resources and collections. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources like online homework help and wi-fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home.
This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library in person or online, following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
The Rogers Public Library Foundation is pleased to announce their participation in Library Giving Day on April 6 to support Rogers Public Library. Library Giving Day is a nationally recognized day of donating to public libraries to fund and support collections of books, technology, and learning programs for communities. Donations can be made at rpl.foundation/donate.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
