DERBY - The Derby Public Library joins libraries across the country in celebrating National Library Week, April 13-19.
First recognized in 1958, this is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association. It is a time to celebrate our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.
The Library has scheduled many special programs and events for all ages in recognition of this special week, including the Annual Spring Book Sale.
In addition, an Amnesty Week has been designated. No fines will be collected from April 14-19.
This is everyone’s opportunity to do some spring cleaning and find those overdue Derby Public Library items and return them without any fines. Previous fines for already returned items will not be waived. Also, fines for lost or damaged items will not be waived.
For more information on events scheduled for this special week, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St., call 203-736-1482 or visit www.derbypubliclibrary.org.
