Celebrate National Library Week in Kansas City…Read, Read, Read!
Hey KC! Did you know April 23rd-29th is National Library Week? As an true library lover, this week has us so excited for all the amazing events going on at our local libraries. Any excuse we can find to get out of the house and into a good book, is right up my family’s alley!
Each day during National Library Week, there are different special days that focus on the people and community involved with local libraries.
This year marks the 61st anniversary of National Library Week, so it’s time to celebrate!
