The theme for National Library Week 2022, “Connect with Your
Library,” promotes the idea that libraries are places to get
connected to technology.

Defiance County’s three libraries, located in Defiance, Sherwood, and Hicksville, offer a wide array of programs, classes, and resources, including physical and digital materials, 1-on-1 tech help, databases, mobile hotspot lending, LinkedIn Learning courses on tech topics, and more.

National Library Week is a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities.

The Defiance County libraries will celebrate with a full slate of programming for all ages, including a virtual program April 4 at 6 p.m. with pet expert Stephen Quandt (‘Dogs of Chernobyl,’ register at defiancelibrary.org/dogs). Quandt will speak on his work with the descendants of pets left behind after the nuclear incident. The program is free and geared to ages 16+. Register at defiancelibrary.org/dogs.

This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library in person or online, following DPLS on social media (@dplslibraries on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) and using the hashtag National Library Week.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
