National Library Workers Day!

Hey guys! This isn't a holiday most people know about but its SO IMPORTANT!

It's National Library Workers Day!

Alright so you might not be thinking this is a huge deal BUT librarians, library technicians, and library aides all around the world (right this very second!) are helping someone learn something new, discover a new world, and best of all, to fall in love with reading.

If that isn't enough for you -

Why you should love libraries:

1. Libraries serve a vital social service by helping bridge social gaps. No matter what your background is, if you have access to a library, you have access to literacy and computer training. They give you resources to learn as well as people to teach you!
2. Libraries have been around for 5,000 years. They contain a TON of info as well as trained people to help you find whatever you're looking for.
3. Libraries can act as safe havens for students at school. For those with anxiety or for those who do not feel comfortable around their peers, the library is a peaceful escape.
4. Libraries provide support for job seekers via free access to the internet to search for and respond to job applications, and by helping them to improve their employability skills.

Among a thousand reasons why you should be proud of library workers, I'm especially fond of this day because my mom is a public school library tech!

She worked at the elementary and middle school levels and has been changing kids lives for almost a decade! (Actually, maybe more than a decade?!)

It was her dream job since she was little and even though it took her a while, she finally got her own library :)

Look! She's even holding a ridiculously large book as a small child! She is never without a book in her hand, car, or purse haha!

(But really that's a bible my grandpa had to swear on to become fire chief, but that's besides the point)

Also, my mom has a Tardis in her school library.

PLUS! She puts in the extra effort to keep her library up with the times. That means focusing part of the small budget on graphic novels since that has proven to be the best way to get middle school boys excited about reading. Or focusing on responsible internet use, how to do research on and offline, and of course, how to find the books you won't want to put down!

So if you see or know someone who works or volunteers in a library, thank them for everything they do!
