Today’s post comes to us from Barbara in Rivertown
This week, April 9 through 15, is National Library Week. Because Husband and I will be on the road, I have already celebrated our wonderful Winona Public Library by returning three books and renewing two others, and writing this piece. We have here in Winona a beautiful old 1890s vintage library built by a donation from William H. Laird and furnished by the library association; it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I have been impressed for months at all the many programs this small town library offers. And now, in the spirit of National Library Week, there is even more:
– Food for Fines – you can have $1 removed from your library fine for every food shelf item you bring in.
– Library Resource class will be held on Thursday at 6 p.m.
– Staff will be dressed to the nines or, on some days, in crazy outfits (Wacky Wednesday) as part of various games.
– The first movie of The Librarian Trilogy featuring “everyone’s favorite librarian, Noah Wyle” will be shown on Friday.
– Monthly Book Bingo will yield prizes of books about libraries, librarians, or books: “The Shadow of the Wind” by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, “The Time Traveler’s Wife” by Audrey Niffenegger, “The World’s Strongest Librarian: A book Lover’s Adventures” by Josh Hanagarne, “The Ice Queen” by Alice Hoffman, and “This Book is Overdue: How Librarians and Cybararians Can Save Us All” by Marilyn Johnson.
How will you celebrate National Library Week?
