Published 4:15 pm Wednesday, April 26, 2023

First Regional Library encourages all community members to visit their local library for National Library Week through April 29 to explore all the things these libraries have to offer.

Most people know about the wealth of stories available at the library, from picture books and large print, to audiobooks and eBooks. But there’s so much more to the story of libraries. 

Libraries are welcoming spaces that bring communities together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, lectures and more.
