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. Rodman Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, April 12 to 18, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
To celebrate National Library Week Rodman Library will hold special events for the community:
Red Tail (Steve Rickard) will give a presentation on his experiences in Africa and on the Loitokitok Route as he climbed his way to the top of Kilimanjaro. The program will be held at Rodman Public Library on Monday, April 13, at 7:00 p.m., in the main auditorium. Many in the Alliance area are familiar with Red Tail through his previous engagements at Rodman. Red Tail is an Alliance native who always brings with him another fascinating tale. No reservations are needed for this program. For more information, call 330-821-2665, ext. 107. APM 3/19/15
