Celebrate National Library Week 2013
Every year, libraries across the nation celebrate National Library Week – a time to highlight the value of libraries and library staff. This year’s theme is Communities Matter @ Your Library.
Community-building connections are happening all the time at Denver Public Library. From new moms connecting at storytime to small business owners convening to discuss ideas, to teens meeting up after school -- the library helps foster all types of communities.
