April brings a cornucopia of celebrations that pay homage to The Word, among them being the American Library Association’s National Library Week  observances Apr. 14-20. The theme for this year’s festivities is “Communities Matter @ Your Library.”

Need I say more?

Hug a librarian, media specialist, devotees to books and media. Buy a book, audiotape, audio book (including mine), maybe even an e-book. Write! Read! Do what you can. We need libraries!

Feel free to share some activities that you plan to participate in this month in honor of these institutions and their valuable “workers” in the library vineyards.
