National Library Week, April 13-19

Lives change @ the CPCC Libraries!

We love what we do and want to celebrate with you during National Library Week, April 13 -19, and National Library Workers Day is April 15. Stop in one of the libraries this week and take a selfie (alone or with a staff member) sharing what YOUR library means to you.  Don’t like taking photos? Then you can tweet your story using the hashtag #LivesChange and #NLW14. Hey! We can’t let the president and the celebrities have all the fun!

Remember, the college will be closed on Friday, April 18 so be sure to stop by before closing on Thursday!
