National Library Week is taking place April 4-10, 2021, but AUSTIN YES encourages you to celebrate with us all month! This year’s theme is “Welcome to Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. During the pandemic, libraries across the country have gone above and beyond to ensure they continue to provide resources for their members. AUSTIN YES has also been working diligently to think of innovative ways to provide additional resources for the community as well.
Within the past two months, SA YES has unveiled two “Little Lockers” at Edgewood ISD and South San ISD, while AUSTIN YES presented an additional “Little Locker” at Del Valle ISD. These “Little Lockers” are available to the public and will provide free art supplies and outdoor activities for the summer months, as well as books on a variety of topics throughout the school year. These “Little Lockers” will also offer educational resources for students annually. We can’t wait for you to visit one of our locations!
Here are a few ways you can participate in National Library Week:
Visit your local library [online]
