National Library Week to be Celebrated April 13–19

“Lives Change @ your library,” this year’s theme for the American Library Association National Library Week, April 13–19, is demonstrated daily in all of Penn State’s University Libraries. Students, faculty, staff as well as community members benefit from the Libraries’ traditional and online collections and superior service of the entire staff.

“Our Libraries seek to empower those that we serve with the skills and knowledge needed to succeed as citizens, parents, students, employees, and consumers through basic literacy, information literacy, civic and social literacy, health literacy, and financial literacy,” noted Barbara I. Dewey, dean of University Libraries and Scholarly Communications. “In our role as an academic as well as a state resources library, we change the lives of those we serve, whether they are in need of assistance with researching a paper, using data sets, or searching for medical information, job information, an author or more.”

The public is encouraged to explore the Libraries resources. Penn State’s Libraries are free and open to the public. Call 814-865-3063 for hours of operation.
