The South Carolina State Library is celebrating National Library Week by hosting a drop-in for SC State Government employees for an inside look at how the State Library operates. The drop-in will be held on April 15th from 11:00am – 2:00pm at 1500 Senate Street, Columbia.
National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide - and the perfect time to discover how worlds connect @ your library.
Staff members will be on hand to provide brief behind the scenes tours of the library as well as provide information on how the State Library serves SC State Government, libraries, and the citizens of the state.
“Everyday, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities,” says David Goble, State Library Director. “At our library we offer a wide range of services from author lectures and programs, to providing research with the assistance of trained professionals to now offering computer workstations to the public so they can get help finding a job and even create or update resumes. We’re excited about telling state government employees about all we have to offer.”
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. For more information about the SC State Library, visit www.statelibrary.sc.gov.
