SYRACUSE — Syracuse Library is celebrating National Library Week.
What better way to celebrate the annual event “National Banned Books Week” than by a late celebration of National Library Week from Sept. 28 through Oct. 3. When you see an “I Love My Library” sign in a neighbor’s yard, you are in on the celebration. Signs will go to a variety of neighborhoods by being picked up at the Syracuse Public Library during open hours from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; or from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
National Library Week normally takes place in April but is making a comeback in time for 2020. September is also National Get A Library Card Month. A library card is access to a lot of services, including two e-book services. A Syracuse membership is an entry to over 100 other libraries in the Evergreen system. What better way to appreciate the right to read than by using a local library.
Two new databases are also available with a card, including the Chilton’s Automobile Library and Gale Legal Forms.
