St. Louis County Library will observe a week of activities in honor of National Library Week, April 9 - 15. Festivities include Food for Fines, special tours and events at library branches, and the launch of the 14 in '12 Campaign. Information about special National Library Week events can be found at www.slcl.org.
Food for Fines (April 9 - 15) allows customers to pay down their library fines by donating canned goods. For each item donated, the library will remove $1 of library fines (up to $10). At the end of the week, the items will be donated to Operation Food Search. Last year the library collected 33,090 lbs of food during the program.
The 14 in '12 Campaign builds on the momentum of SLCL's status as busiest library in Missouri in 2011. The system hopes to set an all time circulation record of 14 million items in 2012. Special displays and promotions will occur at all 20 SLCL branches and on the library's Facebook and Twitter pages.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. For more information, please visit www.slcl.org
