APRIL BRINGS NATIONAL LIBRARY WEEK AND MORE ...

April 13 - 19 is National Library Week, an annual observance to highlight the value of libraries. Libraries have changed dramatically since the American Library Association first celebrated National Library Week in 1958. Who knew that in 2014 you'd be able to test drive a jetliner, record a sound track, use a 3D printer or produce the next great film all at your local library. You can fulfill those creative endeavors and more at the new Melrose Center located on the second floor of the Orlando Public Library. If you haven't checked out this new high-tech hub, please accept our invitation to do so.

Another great way to celebrate National Library Week is to join the Friends of the library and there's never been a better time to do so. The Friends are hosting a membership drive this month. Individuals who join or upgrade their current membership will be entered in a drawing to win great prizes.

The library has a great line-up of programs for people of all ages. As a reminder, all library locations will be closed Sunday, April 20 for Easter. Happy Easter!

Mary Anne Hodel
Library Director/CEO
