Read Alert: National Library Week

What a great thing to celebrate–that likely gorgeous building just down the street from you, filled with fantastic, old-smelling books and infinite knowledge at your fingertips.

It’s National Library Week, in fact, we’re smack-dab in the middle of it. Denver Public Libraries are recognizing National Library Week from April 8-14, encouraging local readers to get out to their nearest branch and support libraries. And National Library Week is about more than just reading a borrowed book. It’s a reminder of everything that libraries offer us.

Here are some awesome examples, courtesy of the Denver Public Library:
