Image result for icons for national library week"Libraries Transform" is the theme for National Library Week in 2017.

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. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.

LIBRARY FUN FACT: The Boston Athenaeum houses the 1837 memoirs of bank robber, James Allen. His memoirs of a lifetime of ill deeds are bound in his own skin!

This week in honor of National Library Week The Norwood High School Library will be waiving all fines if you return your overdue books!!
