Celebrate National Library Week at the Courtright Memorial Library

In honor of National Library Week (April 8-14, 2012) the Courtright Memorial Library is celebrating by offering two events that are free and open to the public. The first event is an Erin McKenzie Virtual Welcoming Space Event taking place on Thursday, April 12, from 4-6 p.m.

The program features Cheryl Jorgensen's discussion titled Schools Where Everyone Belongs: The Story of Pedro's Whale. In her presentation, Dr. Cheryl Jorgensen will use the theme and text of Pedro's Whale and other stories to describe the values and practices that make elementary, middle, and high schools engaging and welcoming environments of learning where no one is left behind.

Happy 40th Anniversary to the Courtright Memorial Library, 1972-2012

The second event is a dual celebration of the Courtright Memorial Library's 40th anniversary and National Library Week. This event, a free movie night, will take place on Friday, April 13th on the second floor of the library. Join your friends and colleagues and enjoy a wonderful comedy short followed by a movie. Refreshments will be served at both events.
