national-library-weekNational Library Month @ the Long Beach Public Library is the time to celebrate the important role libraries and library workers play in our community. Residents of all backgrounds and ages come together every day at our libraries to enjoy books and media, attend meetings, lectures and programs, do research, use computers, get homework help, and much, much more.
