National Library Workers Week | People
“You belong @ your library” is the National Library Workers Week 2012 theme. Whether you are a job seeker looking for career resources, a student working on a school project, a parent looking for free educational activities for children, an avid reader in search of the next popular book, or if you are taking advantage of the many services and resources the library has to offer, “you belong @ your library.”
“The Memphis Public Library & Information Center plays a critical role in the community. We are on the cutting edge of new technology and offer a wide-range of new electronic services…it is an honor to work in such a powerful place alongside so many wonderful, dedicated, and knowledgeable individuals.” said Keenon McCloy, Memphis Public Library & Information Center Director of Libraries.
