Fairview celebrates National Library Week

Margaretville — It’s National Library Week, April 11 through 17, a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide. The Fairview Public Library in Margaretville is celebrating National Library Week by giving away a free book to card-holding patrons who visit the library during the celebration. For those who do not have a library card they may sign up for one and receive their free book. All that is required is a form of identification and proof of address. The library will also be serving refreshments during the weeklong celebration.
“Libraries are they heart of every community and our library helps our community thrive,” says Diana Cope, library director.
“At our library, people of all backgrounds come together for community meetings, lectures, and programs, to do research, to get help filling out job applications, use the Internet, play chess, bring your child to story time, read to dogs, get state tax forms, DVDs, and, of course, take out books,” she added.
