Join the Winter Park Public Library (WPPL) as we celebrate National Library Week 2018 (April 8-14) with the theme “Libraries Lead.”  This is a national observance started back in 1958 and is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and in libraries across the country each April.  The WPPL will join libraries nationwide in celebrating all the ways libraries lead their communities through programs, lifelong learning initiatives, education and transformative services for their patrons.

Libraries are not just places to borrow books or study – they are also innovative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate, develop new skills, take classes free of charge, participate in creative programs and access technology.  Libraries have been evolving to meet the changing needs of their communities offering widespread access to life changing services for everyone -- from infants and special needs preschoolers to small business owners and retirees -- the library helps improve the quality of life for so many.

So, come out and celebrate libraries and consider participating in the WPPL’s Giving Tree located in the lobby.  Support your library during National Library Week and sponsor a gift to help pay for print books, digital books and other needed library resources.  Gifts range in value from $10 to $1,500. The WPPL is a public/private partnership and relies on generous charitable donations to continue its efforts supporting local literacy.

You can give today online or for more information, contact Kristin LaFleur, Director of Development at 407-623-3277.
