Lives Change @your library! – National Library Week 2014

Preschool_story_timeAs we near the end of National Library Week (April 13-19) the Library Foundation wants to highlight the 2014 NLW theme: Lives Change @your library! Readers and tweeters have celebrated the week by posting and commenting on their library experiences with the tags #liveschange and #NLW2014.  So rather than hearing why we think the library is vital in a community, we thought who better to share the impact of libraries than the people all across our nation who use them! We encourage you to take a moment to consider how the library has influenced you personally as you read the comments of these library fans:

For my elementary school librarian who never told me, “that book is too hard for you” – You changed my life. #LivesChange #NLW2014

“The rush to be the first to check out the new books was the biggest buzz.” -Jamaica, VT #LivesChange#LibraryWeekhttp://bit.ly/1maz4ur

Simply put, libraries have been and continue to be a mainstay in my life and education, of which I owe them a great debt. #LivesChange

Library changed my life twice: once as a child @ the bookmobile, once as an adult by hiring me. #NLW14#LivesChange
