April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to celebrate libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries aren't only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate.

Cuyahoga Falls Library supports the five E's of libraries: 1. Education; 2. Employment; 3. Entrepreneurship; 4. Empowerment; 5. Engagement

"We truly have something for everyone, from materials to programs to technology support to study and meeting room spaces," said library director Valerie Kocin. "Libraries level the playing field for people of any age who are seeking the information and access to technologies that will improve their quality of life."

Libraries also offer something unique to their communities -- the expertise of individual librarians. Librarians assist patrons in using increasingly complex technology and sorting through the potentially overwhelming mass of information bombarding today's digital society. This skill is especially crucial when access to reliable and trustworthy data is more important than ever.

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.
