National Library Week, Open House 2018

South Texas College Libraries Open House 2018

The South Texas College Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.

The South Texas College Library is celebrating National Library Week by hosting Open House events at each campus library. The events are free and open to the public.
