Celebrate National Library Week with LPL Book Sale and More at the Liverpool Public Library

By Melissa McCurdy, Communications Assistant

Libraries are full of stories in a variety of formats from picture books to large print, audiobooks to e-books, and more. But there is so much more to the story, especially at the Liverpool Public Library.

With your library card, you have access to LPL’s Library of Things, which lends items like museum passes, games, musical instruments, and technology, like Chromebooks and hotspots. LPL programs bring our community together for entertainment, education, and connection through book clubs, story times, movie screenings, crafting classes, lectures, and more. Most recently, LPL partnered with Micron Technology, Inc. for a science, technology, engineering and mathematics education night that included a virtual reality demonstration and patrons wearing Micron “bunny suits.”

LPL’s mission is to connect our community, engage people and inspire discovery, learning and growth. National Library Week 2023 is a great time to explore LPL’s multi-faceted story by attending or participating in one of the many scheduled activities. This year, we will conclude National Library Week with our Fill-a-Bag Book Sale on Saturday, April 29 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Sunday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. We hope to see you there!
