This week is National Library Week and I almost missed it. Sleep deprived, struggling to fix my manuscript caused me to forget one of my favorite times of the year—this. Why? '
1. Well for one- Neil Gaiman is this year’s spokesperson.
2. Libraries are the only institutions dedicated to reading, housing great literature, and supporting authors.
If you’re a novice reader, visit your local public library to check out a book. If you’re an avid reader, start a reading group at your public library. And if you’re an author, well…write well enough to become a spokesperson for them. LOL. just kidding. Really. If you’re an author, do I have to tell you what to do? How ‘bout you meet me there?
Congrats to Dakota Aycox, the winner of the 2010
National Library Week Bookmark Contest
at my local (Newton County) Library. Isn’t it cute?
Check out your local libary to find out what celebrations are going on today and tomorrow.
