About National Library Week

National Library Week, sponsored by the American Library Association, is annual celebration of the nation’s libraries, library workers’ contributions and a promotion of library use and support. The 2022 theme is “Connect with Your Library.” It’s a reminder that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers, and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas, and classes – in addition to books.

Parking will be free in the RPL metered lot from Monday through Saturday.
