Did you know there is a National Library Week? National Library Week is a national observance, sponsored by the American Library Association, which was started in 1958. Each year libraries across the country observe National Library Week with special events unique to each individual library. Here at VSU, Odum Library, in conjunction with the Dewer College of Education and Human Services, sponsors an event called Read Fest. Read Fest is an annual event organized to promote the importance and fun of reading to local Pre-Kindergarten Students.

This year’s Read Fest Event will be the biggest ever with about 300 Pre-Kindergarten students attending. The front lawn, in front of West Hall, will be transformed into several stations for the Pre-K students. The stations will include interactive puppet shows, book reading, arts and crafts, hula hoops and jump ropes, and a special visit from the famous Chick-fil-A cow! For more information about Read Fest and how you may be able to help, contact Brett Williams at bawillia@valdosta.edu.

Be sure to stop by the library next week to thank a library worker. Tuesday, April 14, is National Library Workers Day. The librarians, staff, and student assistants in all of the areas in the library work hard to make sure the library is open, clean, organized, and comfortable so you can enjoy your time here. While the faces you see at the Circulation desks, Reference desks, Media Services department, and Archives department may be who come to mind when you think of library workers, there are many more faces behind the scenes that help keep the library going.

So next week be sure to not only thank the people working with the public services, but remember everyone working hard behind the scenes to provide access to the information you need. If you would like to recognize a library worker, you can nominate that person as a stellar library worker. To nominate a library worker fill in the National Library Workers Day: Submit a Star form.
