Warren County Memorial Library Celebrates National Library Week

This week Warren County Memorial Library invites all community members to “find the library at their place” by visiting their website www.wcmlibrary.org to access virtual services and resources. While the library’s physical spaces may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, the public can discover ebooks, movies, online storytimes, language learning software, virtual tours of NC parks, and much more—all from home.

In times of crisis, libraries respond to their community’s needs in innovative and inspiring ways. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, libraries are continuing to make a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic resources, including virtual homework help, resume building tools, and information about keeping your family well and safe. At the Warren County Memorial Library, there are a wide array of free virtual services available from providers such as NC Kids and NC Live.

April 19-25, 2020 is National Library Week; this is a time to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The original theme for National Library Week 2020 - “find your place at the library” - was chosen months ago before the emergence of a global pandemic would force libraries to close their buildings. In response to our rapidly changing times, the theme was revised to “find the library at your place” to bring attention to how libraries are open for business online, offering the electronic services and digital content their communities need now more than ever.

Library staff encourages Warren County residents to make use of the myriad of electronic materials as well as screen-free activities highlighted on the library’s website www.wcmlibrary.org. All of the services mentioned in this article can be accessed completely free of charge. For more information, or help accessing electronic resources, call library staff Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 5:00 at 252-257-4990.
