April is a time for celebration in and acknowledgement of libraries. The whole month has been designated by the American Library Association as Library Snapshot Day, which provides a way for all libraries to show what happens in a single day in their libraries. We’ll be posting a photo on the blog each week in April to highlight activities in the IRC and celebrate Library Snapshot Day.
We’ll also be celebrating National Library Week the week of April 14th. This is a national observance to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries (school, public, academic, and special), and librarians and to promote library use and support.
National Library Workers Day falls on the Tuesday of National Library Week, and the purpose is to recognize all library workers, including librarians, support staff and others who make library service possible every day.
The concept of Library Snapshot Day began in New Jersey as a joint effort between the New Jersey Library Association and the New Jersey State Library. Enjoy this week’s Library Snapshot of two paintings by IMSA student Phuong Vo. These lovely paintings enhance our library and remind us all that the IRC at IMSA is a place where art is celebrated.
