Celebrate National Library Week, April 13-19

Join the circle of knowledge @ your library: celebrate National Library Week at the the Augusta R. Kolwyck Library here at Chattanooga State, April 13-19

It’s National Library Week, a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries, librarians and library workers in schools, campuses and communities nationwide - and the perfect time to discover how you can join the circle of knowledge @ your library.

One of the ways we are celebrating this 50th anniversary is by offering free access to a variety of web-based resources provided by Greenwood Press and Gale. Visit our
National Library Week: Free Resources page.

“Everyday, libraries in big cities and small towns, colleges and universities, in schools and in businesses help transform their communities,” says Vicky Leather, Dean of Library Services. At our library, people of all backgrounds are welcome to collaborate, to do individual research, or to work with the assistance of a professional librarian, an experienced staff person, or a trained student worker. That assistance can come in the form of extensive research for a class project, help with finding and checking out a book, or technical assistance with software.

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, visit Chattanooga State's Augusta R. Kolwyck Library at 4501 Amnicola Hwy, call 697-4448, or see the library’s web site at The library's hours are Monday-Thursday, 7:30 AM-9:00 PM; Friday, 7:30 AM-4:30 PM, and Saturday, 11:00 AM-4:00 PM.
