Wheat Law Library celebrates National Library Week

National Library Week is observed this year from April 10 through April 16 with the theme “Create your own story @ your library.” The first sponsored National Library Week was in 1958, and the American Library Association has continued this yearly celebration in April ever since. It’s a great time to recognize the contributions our libraries have made to our communities. And, of course, the Wheat Law Library will be celebrating in style! Today is National Library Workers Day. “Libraries Work Because We Do!”
