Activities Offered to Patrons During National Library Week







Activities Offered to Patrons
During National Library Week
The Grant County Public Library in Milbank will celebrate National Library Week April 4-10. The theme for this year is “Welcome to Your Library.”
The library welcomes all visitors. Jodi Carlson, director, urges patrons to stop in during National Library Week to pick up an age-appropriate coloring sheet or activity page. Those who return the completed page will receive a reward. The library is located at 207 E Park Avenue.
There are more public libraries than Starbucks in the U.S. and nearly 100% of public libraries provide Wi-Fi and have no-fee access to computers. In South Dakota alone, libraries welcome 10,100 visitors a day and circulate 16,000 items.
During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities’ demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users’ needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning.
The Grant County Public Library system also has branch libraries in Big Stone City, Revillo and Strandburg. The library has an online presence at as well as on FaceBook. Individuals can utilize the online library catalog, see what programs are underway, check on libraries hours and much more through the website.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.  
“So stop at the Grant County Public Library and see what it can do for you,” said Carlson.
