Share Your Library Story

The theme for National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021), “Welcome to Your Library,” promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. During the pandemic libraries have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their users. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.

Tali Faris-Hylen and Family

"My family loves the ELPL. When my kids were babies and toddlers, they loved the play and story times. Now, we regularly check out books and love all of the programming offered. Plus, the staff is always so friendly and helpful. I appreciate Director Kristin Shelley's forward thinking; she provides robust programming focusing on equity and racial/social justice, looking to inform our community about issues that really matter. We are really lucky to have such an amazing library and team in our community."
