During National Library Week, Check Out Your Library Online

Natalie Portman National Library Week Honorary Chair

This week, Blackwell Public Library encourages all community members to visit their website to explore and access virtual services and programs. The library offers a wide array of online resources that are available from the comfort of home, including OK Virtual Library, educational and informational databases, our online catalog with reader’s advisory and all of our social media. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, and right here, on our website.

April 4-10, 2021 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to your Library”, which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Whether people visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery, and exploration.

During these challenging times, libraries of all types have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their patrons. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources like online homework help and wi-fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home. Blackwell Public Library is supporting the community with virtual services such as high speed wireless internet, hotspots available for checkout, outdoor access points to extend the reach of our wi-fi, and virtual programs.

This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library’s website, following them on social media, and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
