April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. 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 the many ways libraries are transforming their communities every day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer.

And don't forget our "How Do I...?" day on March 11 or ongoing computer classes when you can come in and learn with others.
