During the week of April 20 – 24, libraries around the country, including the McPherson Public Library, will celebrate National Library Week. The week, which started in 1958, is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. This year, given recent challenges, it is especially important to observe the significant role that libraries play in the lives of community members.
The library has adjusted their original on-site National Library Week program offerings to enable online participation.

Services and programs that can be accessed and utilized online will be highlighted through social media platforms.
