COLFAX — This week, the Colfax Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.
Libraries today are more than warehouses for books. Instead, libraries and librarians are change agents within their communities – transforming lives through innovative educational resources and forward-thinking programing. Libraries are doing their part to close the digital divide and level the playing field by providing free access to information and technologies that many in their communities would be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Libraries help to ensure the American dream and promote democracy by providing service to all regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic status.
Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students and the public at large to discover and meet the needs of their communities. Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, programs for job seekers or offering a safe haven in times of crisis, librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.
The Colfax Public Library serves Colfax and surrounding towns by providing free Internet access and computer workstations, along with Story Time, Summer Reading program, LEGO Club, Game Board Club, Book Club, and many more programs for adults and children.
“The library has always been a place of unlimited possibilities for every age,” said Lisa Ludwig, Colfax Public Library Director. “Whatever your interest or need, the library and the library staff are here to provide you the resources you need to accomplish your goals and dreams.”
The Colfax Public Library is celebrating National Library week by scheduling Michelle Rayburn, local author of The Repurposed and Upcycled Life, on Thursday, April 16th at 6:30 p.m., along with the Game Board Club event at 3:30-4:30 p.m. that same day. We will also be offering Worlds of Shadow, presented by artist & author, Anne Sawyer-Aitch (Minneapolis, MN) on Saturday, April 18 at 10:30-11:30 a.m.
