Ways to Celebrate
Nothing shows your appreciation better than a good, old-fashioned library visit. Hannon Library is open to everyone, so come on by. Check out our collections and services. Thank a librarian for their work and wish them a happy Library Week. Can’t get here in person? Visit is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Tuesday, April 10 is National Library Workers Day, which was established in 2003 to give librarians and library staff recognition for their hard work and dedication. Nominate a library worker of your choice to the ALA Galaxy of Stars.
Because what would libraries be without books? In fact, Hannon Library is holding its Spring Book Sale this week, beginning Wednesday, April 11 and continuing through the weekend, while supplies last.
Attend an event!
Libraries are far more than just warehouses for books—they also serve as community hubs where people can gather to learn, work, and recreate. The Friends of Hannon Library will be hosting a special event, Blending Poetry and Cloth, on Thursday, April 12, at 4 pm. This art exhibit and presentation, featuring artists from the Studio Art Quilt Associates as well as SOU students, is free and open to the public.
Become a Friend!
In addition to organizing speaker events, the Friends of Hannon Library work to support the library with book and material purchases that the library otherwise would be unable to afford. Become a Friend today and help enrich our collections.
