National Library Week

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

“One thing any Librarian will tell you: the truth is much stranger than fiction…” 

Irene is a librarian for the secret organization, Library, which works to collect important books from all of the different worlds. Irene has recently been assigned an assistant, Kai, whom she is to train and guide in this mysterious career choice. Their mission sends them to an alternate London to collect a dangerous book. Once they arrive in London, the book's already been stolen! Irene and Kai encounter supernatural creatures, magic and secrets galore in this chaos-filled world.

The secrets, alternate worlds, supernatural creatures, and mysteries galore will keep you hooked from the very beginning of this tale. Keep reading the series to go on more adventures and uncover the mysteries with Irene and Kai. Who knew being a librarian was so full of adventure?!

(Books 1-3 available in print at the Library)

(Books 1-6 available as eBooks through Bridges or Libby app)

And if you enjoy fantasy-filled tales of librarians on adventures and saving the world, don't miss The Librarian: Quest for the Spear on Kanopy! You might know that you must know the Dewey Decimal System and be a master at research to be a librarian, but did you realize you must also save the world!? In The Librarian movies, new librarian Flynn Carsen begins his adventure at the Metropolitan Library and travels around the world to places like the Amazon jungle and the Himalayas. Flynn’s job as The Librarian means he’s a keeper of top-secret treasures like Excalibur and he must use his knowledge to save the world. The adventures continue with The Librarian: Curse of the Judas Chalice and The Librarian: Return to King Solomon’s Mines.

For National Library Week, April 4-10, 2021, we’re celebrating the library, staff and all that libraries have to offer. This year’s theme “Welcome to Your Library” is highlighting that the library extends past the building, and that everyone is welcome! 

“During the pandemic libraries have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their users. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.” 

We’re collecting patron’s favorite memories, why you love the library and displaying them on our bulletin board all month long. Write a message and take a look at what everyone has to say about our Library, during your next visit!


What’s your favorite library memory? How have you made use of libraries during your life?
