From April 12 through18, the Springdale Public Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.
"The library has always been a place of unlimited possibilities,” said Marcia Ransom, Library director. "Whatever your interest or need, the Library and the library staff are here to provide you the resources you need to accomplish your goals and dreams."
