Montgomery County Public Libraries Celebrates National Library Week; Libraries Transform

Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) will join community and school libraries to celebrate the dynamic changes happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Modern-day libraries are much more than books and a quiet place to study. They are creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or just relax.

MCPL offers hundreds of programs and services at the 21 branches located throughout the County. In addition to traditional services such as checking out books, MCPL offers wide-ranging amenities including a plethora of digital and technical offerings.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance each April sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use.
