National Library Week

Yesterday I did a presentation at Texas A&M-San Antonio University to help celebrate National Library Week. The school is absolutely gorgeous. The architecture, the grounds, the inside, the library as a whole, etc. I was so impressed. We are indeed very lucky here in San Antonio to have so many junior colleges, four-year colleges and universities in our community. I applaud all the librarians and library helpers at all levels: elementary, middle-grade, high school, and university. Today libraries offer more than books. At some libraries, they offer for checkout e-books, iPads, plus tutoring for adults, book clubs, author visits, classes, taxes done, and much more. Visit your local library today and find out what they offer.
