Library Celebrates National Library Week

National Library WeekFrom April 9 – 15, the Adams County Public Library celebrates National Library Week. National Library Week, first organized by the American Library Association in 1958, is a nationwide celebration of the service libraries provide to their communities. Stop by your local library, and tell us about why libraries are important to you. This year’s national theme is “Libraries Transform.” Pick up information at the library desk about how to show your support for your local library.

Thanks to your support, the Adams County Public Library has achieved these goals in recent months:

  • Our libraries are now fine free. You will never owe a fine for items returned after the due date. Simply return or renew your items before borrowing more.
  • The library is issuing starter library cards to every child enrolled in school in Adams County. Parents who stop by the library with their child can upgrade the child card to full borrowing privileges with a signature.
  • We look forward to hosting the USDA’s free Summer Lunch service again this summer, June 5 – July 28. Anyone under 18 can each lunch free at the library, each weekday at noon. Thanks to Manchester Local Schools for providing fresh food daily, in partnership with the USDA’s program.
  • More new books and movies are available at the library than ever before. If we don’t have the item you want, stop by the desk to submit an Item Request Form, and we’ll find the title you need.
  • Weekly activities are available at the library for kids, teens, and adults. View our calendar of events to see what’s happening.
  • The Ohio Digital Library, our online eBook lending library, surpassed 1,000,000 downloads last week.

If it’s been a while since you visited the Adams County Public Library, stop by and see us. You’ll be welcome!
