Community members can share their gratitude to the Longmont Library this week as part of National Library Week.
This year’s National Library Week began April 3 and continues through April 9, highlighting the role library professionals and libraries play in bringing services and resources to those in need.
“Our library is a welcoming space for all community members from all walks of life,” said Heidi Reitmeier, marketing and communications specialist for the Longmont Library. “We couldn’t be prouder to serve the community and offer all the free resources and services that help everyone.”
The library offers a variety of in-person and online services to link people to information and lifelong learning. Story times, online research options, access to computers and printing services and material deliveries to homebound community members are some of the resources the Longmont Library provides.
“It’s more than books — although we do love them here — from our Wi-Fi hotspots, study rooms and computer access to programs for kids, teens and adults, community meet-ups and more, the Longmont Library has something for everyone,” Reitmeier said.
The library is celebrating National Library Week by inviting patrons to write appreciation letters to staff on why they love their local library. Handwritten letters may be dropped in the box located in the library’s lobby and digital letters can be submitted to bit.ly/LibLetters.
“It’s great to see the love that is clear in those letters to staff — from our youngest visitors to our oldest and everyone between,” Reitmeier said.
