Indian Hills celebrates National Library Week

Libraries are in the spotlight this week as National Library Week takes place.

Indian Hills Community College is celebrating with events all week at their library.

Festivities kicked off today with Monday morning munchies as the library provided students with food and beverages as they returned from spring break.

During tech zoo Tuesday, students will learn how to use the library's downloadable e-books which will in turn save them from shelling out cash to online book stores.

Library Services Supervisor Cheryl Talbert said there is more to a library than books.

"It's more about a community rather than just--'oh, im going to check out a book'," said Talbert. "We do have plenty of books, and we encourage a lot of reading of our books and circulation of those. There's so much more to libraries than just the books."

The American Library Association first observed National Library Week in 1958 with a goal to promote libraries, librarians, and showcase values libraries bring to communities.
