National Library Week

What is National Library Week? Each year, around the 2nd week of April, libraries across the nation will highlight the roles of libraries, librarians, and staff and what part they play in communities. For most students at Leeward Community College, the library is the first place they go when they are in need of answers. Come by and let us show you what we have to offer (besides books & computers)!
