Connect with the Buena Park Library District during National Library Week, April 3-9, 2022

April 3-9, 2022 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers, and other resources. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.

This week, the Buena Park Library District encourages all community members to visit the library in person or online. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing valuable programs and services to enrich their communities. Buena Park Library District is supporting our community with services such as HelpNow, an online homework help resource; online learning platforms for adults, including Coursera and LinkedIn Learning; mobile hotspots to access the internet away from the library; and Launchpad early learning tablets to encourage learning at a young age.

Additionally, the Buena Park Library District supports in person community connections for library patrons of all ages. Children can enjoy Story Time followed by educational play on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 10:00am beginning in April. The Library will also be hosting an in-person DIY bath bomb craft program for adults on Monday, April 4th at 6:00pm. The Buena Park Library District also provides weekly take home craft kits for children, monthly take home craft kits for teens and adults, monthly book clubs for adults, and monthly Teen Advisory Board meetings where teens can earn volunteer service hours by assisting with library programs and providing input on library services.

This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library in person or online, and by following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
