State Treasurer to Celebrate National Library Week at Frankford Public Library
State Treasurer Colleen C. Davis will join the Frankford Public Library for their Community Connect Night on Monday, April 8 to celebrate National Library Week. National Library Week is an annual celebration that began in 1958 to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities.
“Libraries in Delaware and throughout the country are so much more than buildings that house books – they are hubs of community that provide critical resources and programs to their neighborhoods,” said Treasurer Davis.
The Frankford Public Library has served the community for 88 years, and hosts programming including bilingual story time and homework help, Teen Advisory Group, Adult Book Circle, Social Workers at the Library, and more.
Community Connect Night will be a family-friendly evening, offering opportunities to meet with staff and Library Director Lesley Koble. Two reading opportunities for children and those young heart will be keystones of the evening. First, at 5:00PM, the PAWS Reading Program will encourage attendees to read aloud to a furry, friendly therapy companion. At 6:45PM, State Treasurer Colleen Davis will conclude the evening with a favorite from the Children’s Library.
