Libraries = Strong Communities
National Library Week

National Library Week (April 7- 13, 2019) is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to library business centers that help support entrepreneurship and retraining, libraries offer opportunities to all. The theme for 2019 National Library Week is “Libraries = Strong Communities.”
Stop by the Winterset Public Library to see what you have been missing. Anyone who may have lost their library card can get it replaced for free during National Library Week. Visitors can pick up a sweet treat!
