Letter: Explore library services

To the Editor:

This week, the Yorkville Public Library encourages all community members to visit their library in person or online to explore and access services and programs. The Yorkville Public Library offers a wide array of programs, classes and resources that are available in person or from the comfort of home. We have hybrid book clubs and a creative writing group, virtual national bestseller author events, in person crafting and STEM programs, laptops and hotspots for checkout, yoga classes, and Mini Golf in the Library.

April 3-9, 2022, is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology and other resources in addition to books.

Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming and collections. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources such as online homework help and Wi-Fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home. We support our community with services such as lending laptops and hotspots to people who do not have access to broadband services, voter registration, Museum Adventure Passes, print from home services, curbside pickup and much more.

We are kicking off National Library Week with our annual Minigolf FUN Raiser hosted by the Friends of the Library and sponsored by many businesses throughout our community. Visitors can play 18 holes of golf inside the library and buy raffle tickets for gift baskets donated by area businesses.

The Yorkville Public Library also is participating with 11 other area libraries in a Library Road Trip for the month of April. Come to the library and pick up your Library Road Trip passport and get your passport stamped at each location you visit for a chance to win a grand prize basket highlighting your community.
