It's All Happening at the Library

Libraries are intended to be community gather places, a one-stop-shop for resources and, as always, a place
to get really great books, movies and music -- all for free.

And if you take a look at what's happening at libraries this month, you would be hard-pressed to disagree.

* So, as this flyer shows, the Pottstown Regional Public Library is celebrating "Family Reading Month" in April, challenging family to read together for 20 minutes a day for 20 days.

But you have to register by next Saturday.

* The Pottstown Regional Public Library is also hosting an important new workshop on Tuesday April 16 at 10 a.m.

That's when Genesis Housing Corp. and National Penn Bank will host a free workshop on "Banking Basics."

Topics will include: Banking for Real Life; Free and Low Cost Accounts; How to Start or Start Over; How to Avoid Identity Fraud.

It will also offer the opportunity to ask the experts your questions and chances to win door prizes.

For more information and to register, call 610-275-4357 or visit www.genesishousing.org

* Further, Danielle Small, library media specialist over at the Pottsgrove High School Library has announced  plans to celebrate National Library Week there, from April 14 to April 20.

The include Amnesty Day (April 15); Design Your Own Bookmark Day (April 16); and Student Drawing to win Barnes and Noble Gift Card Day (April 19).

Appropriately, National Library Week occurs during School Library Month, according to the American Library Association, which sponsors both celebrations.

School Library Month began in 1985 and the theme of the first national observance of School Library Month was "Where Learning Never Ends: The School Library Media Center."
