Kirti Patel ,
This week is ‘’National Library Week’’ therefore I would like to elaborate a bit on it. National Library week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and library workers and to promote library use and support.
The theme for this year’s national library week is “Libraries Transform.’’ Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and re-engage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues. While we have some people turning towards reading online, the actual benefits of reading directly prevails. We still have people looking for libraries for reading and researching.
- Library is a very essential place. Library is where one get’s answers to their curiosity. - Library is where one’s knowledge is enhanced. - Library is where members of the community meet to discuss, read and share ideas and knowledge.
- Library is full of resources that can broaden one’s horizons. - Library is the key component that opens its doors for many purposes. - Library is where many lives are transformed. - Library is where impossible can become possible.
Library is a very important and powerful place where knowledge can be gained, the knowledge that will always be with us.
Therefore I urge you all to make the most of your library and gain the power of knowledge as it’s the most powerful tool one can have. Please read as much as you can as reading will help you all benefit in many ways.
One just has to go to the library to realise how the ‘’Libraries Transform.’’
No doubt, there will be library week celebrations around the country and schools as well. Most of the schools have decided to merge the Suicide Day with library week programme or celebration on Friday.
I hope if possible, everyone partakes in this event also to make use of their nearest library to read as well as acknowledge the place, staff and resources.
Taking this opportunity, I would like to thank all the Librarians and assistant librarians around the country. This is your week to shine. Thank you for your contributions all this while.
