Editor, The News:

This week, New Castle Public Library, Ellwood City Public Library and F.D. Campbell Memorial Library, members of the Lawrence County Federated Library System, join libraries of all types across Pennsylvania and the nation in celebrating the many ways libraries build strong communities by providing critical resources, programs and expertise.

April 7-13 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Libraries are at the heart of their cities, towns, schools and campuses. They have public spaces where people of all backgrounds can come together and connect.

Library programs encourage community members to meet to discuss civic issues, work together using new technologies or learn alongside one another. Library staff also partner with other civic and service organizations to actively engage with

the people they serve, always striving to make sure their community’s core needs are being met.

Libraries promote the free exchange of information and ideas for all, they also foster civic engagement by keeping people in formed and aware of community events and issues.

Visit your Lawrence County library today.
