Local libraries celebrate National Library Week


REGION — National Library Week is April 13 to 19, a time to remind the public about the contributions libraries, librarians and library workers make to their communities every day. The Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS) and its member libraries during National Library Week are celebrating the valuable contribution of libraries and librarians in schools, universities and public libraries.

“Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers providing free and open access to information for all people,” said Robert Hubsher, RCLS Executive Director. “Today’s libraries continue this tradition, supporting the education of our children, the life-long educational needs of adults and the growing need for digital literacy.”

The RCLS is a state mandated organization serving 47 member libraries in Orange, Rockland, Sullivan and part of Ulster counties.
