During National Library Week, April 10 through 16, Loudoun County Public Library will celebrate the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries.
“Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging gathering places where people can collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or just relax,” said Library Director Chang Liu. “Whether through offering e-books and technology classes, materials for English-language learners, early childhood literacy, or programs for job seekers, we listen to the community we serve, and respond.”
To meet the Loudoun community face to face, Liu will be holding Town Hall meetings at each branch during the week:
Lovettsville Library: Monday, April 11 from 10:30am to 12:30pm
Cascades Library: Monday, April 11 from 5pm to 7pm
Ashburn Library: Tuesday, April 12 from 10am to Noon
