Hazel Mackin Community Library: This week is National Library Week

Written by Krissa Coleman, library director

April is a busy month! This week is National Library Week which was first sponsored in 1958. School, public and academic libraries all participate in this national observance. It's a time to promote how libraries are used and supported. From free access to all for materials, programs for all ages of the community, space to study, meeting rooms for crafters and classes, computers and printers, faxing, scanning, and free Wi-Fi to name just a few. Libraries are no longer what many of the baby boomers remember where the librarian wears glasses down on the bridge of her nose and is there to scare anyone who makes a peep above a whisper. If that is what you think of today's library, I challenge you to come into your community library and see what is happening. Laughter and learning are a regular part of our patron's experience, from toddlers to senior citizens we have so much to offer. Does our building house books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, video games, music, puzzles and Historical archives? Absolutely! However, the Hazel Mackin Community Library is your community center, a place to learn and grow, laugh and play, meet and greet. Check out our website and like us on Facebook to learn what we have going on for you!

Food for Fines: During the month of April bring in any nonperishable food item to receive $1 off of your fines. One item equals $1 off. It's a win-win, you can pay down any fines you might have and food shelves will be stocked for the upcoming summer months. If you don't have any fines and still want to participate, we would love to have you donate your food items.
