Celebrate National Library Week at Your Local Branch through April 15

National Library Week, April 9 – 15, 2017, is a time to celebrate Daly City’s four libraries and your library workers for transforming lives through free access to technology, information literacy, diverse collections and opportunities for community engagement.  Are you looking for a new way to explore your library? Now you can and be entered to win a prize! Peninsula Library System is having a "Passport to your Library Adventure" program through April 15. Simply drop by any Daly City public library for your Passport and be on your way.

In a world of rapid technological and cultural change, libraries and library workers are establishing themselves as trusted resources for both individuals and the community at large. Conducting an online search can be a daunting task, even for an experienced researcher, with millions of hits for any question or topic. Librarians are trained experts who can guide library users through this information jungle to find what they are seeking, whether they are verifying news sources, investigating healthcare options or exploring sources of student financial aid.

Libraries also provide a wide range of opportunities for people with diverse wants and interests, including cultural heritage collections, materials in alternate formats such as large print, multilingual internet trainings, bilingual story hours, English as a Second Language classes and many other programs.
