Schiavo Library: April Newsletter

Renewal Time!
Hooray, spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner! If you were one of our first members, your membership will be up for renewal May 31st. Please stop in anytime and renew! We look forward to seeing you.

April 11 – 17th: National Library Week
Since 1958, National Library Week has been observed by the American Library Association (ALA) to encourage the use and appreciation of our libraries. In the mid-1950’s research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios and televisions. The ALA created National Library Week to increase awareness of libraries. Fifty-two years later we’re competing with even more electronic devices, but we still need to protect our libraries. National Library Week at the Schiavo will feature a Book Lovers Trivia Quiz and Raffle. Stop in for details.

New Feature: Strathmere Favorites
We would like to hear from you – tell us about your favorite book (fiction or nonfiction) and why you think someone else would enjoy it. We’ll feature it in upcoming newsletters and have a copy available at the library. What better way to share your love of books! Email us:

Audio Book Collection
Our audio book collection is expanding thanks to donations from patrons, especially Veronica Roash. Thanks and keep listening and sharing!

Christine Rohrman, Library Director
