INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — “Communities Matter At Your Library” is the theme of this year’s National Library Week, April 14-20.

Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to land a new position, a parent looking for free activities for the family, or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong at your library.

National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA). According to the ALA, libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge.

Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people.

The Incline Village Library is a part of the Tahoe Library Coalition, and the public is invited to join Sierra Nevada College’s Prim Library, Incline Village Library, Incline High Library, Tahoe Expedition Academy Library, Kings Beach Public Library and North Tahoe High School Library during the week of April 14-20 in this celebration of libraries.
