It happens now until April 25 is the National Library Week, a time to highlight the valuable role that libraries, librarians and librarians play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. This week, the Carson City Library invites all community members to find the library in their place by visiting www.carsoncitylibrary.org to access virtual services and resources.
While the physical spaces of the library may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, the public can discover ebooks, films, online stories and much more, all from home.
Books and videos are available through the library's OverDrive collection here and the library staff offers a variety of virtual programs through social media and video conferencing.

The library's month-long Capitals Reads program – this year with John Muir's My First Summer in the Sierra – will also begin during National Library Week, with downloadable ebooks and audiobooks, virtual programs, and a walk to the # 39 ; opened with quotes from the book set up in Carson River Park.
In times of crisis, libraries respond to the needs of their community in innovative and stimulating ways. During the coronavirus pandemic, libraries of all types continue to make a difference in people's lives by providing electronic learning resources including help with virtual homework, online creation and DIY sessions, as well as information on how to keep their family at home. safe and secure. Information on the virtual services of the Carson Municipal Library is available on the Home Library page and through our weekly Home Library newsletters.
During this National Library week, audiences can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting the library's website, following @CarsonCityLibrary on social media, and using the #NationalLibraryWeek hashtag.
Share some love on social media for your virtual library services during National Library Week by publishing an e-book, audiobook, virtual storytime or bookclub or how your library made a difference while doing social distancing at home.
The original National Library Week theme, "Find your place in the library", was chosen months ago before the emergence of a global pandemic forced libraries to close their buildings. In response to our rapidly evolving times, the theme has been revised in "Find the library in your place" to draw attention to how libraries are open for online businesses, offering the electronic services and digital content of which their communities need now more than ever.
Sponsored for the first time in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries of all types across the country every April.
