Placer County Celebrates ‘Libraries Transform' During National Library Week

Published on April 07, 2016

In celebration of National Library Week, April 10 to 16, Placer County's public libraries will offer free special events throughout the month of April, featuring a root'n-toot'n cowgirl, video contest for teens, storytime activities, our famous bookmobile, concerts by the duet, Musical Robot and more.

"Libraries Transform," this year's theme led by the American Library Association, is designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact and services provided by libraries and library professionals.

Placer County is proud of our public library system and library staff for all their dedication and devotion to enriching the lives of our community residents through open access to services, programs and materials that inform, empower and entertain.

Some scheduled events celebrating National Library Week include:

  • Teen Video Contest , tell us why you love your library and your video could be featured on the Placer County Library Teen's website
  • ‘Love Your Library' Storytime featuring a library-themed craft
  • Celebrate with Musical Robot  with songs, stories and more
  • Cowgirl Karen Quest (PDF)  performing her old west tricks for cowboys and cowgirls of all ages

Library enthusiasts can also visit the Placer County Bookmobile and wish our Bookmobile library staff a Happy National Bookmobile Day on Wednesday, April 13. The Bookmobile is a full-service traveling library offering books, magazines, audio books, CDs and DVDs. Staff can assist in book selections, provide reference service and fill requests for specific titles. After traveling 300-000-plus miles checking out books and distributing information to users of all ages, Placer County is excited to welcome a new bookmobile to the community later this fall.
