National Library Week kicks off today! While it's true that this year's original theme, "Find Your Place at the Library" didn't age particularly well, we love its core message: that
the library is a welcoming, inclusive, and supportive environment for everyone and anyone
And the updated theme ("Find The Library at Your Place") resonates, too: we've moved from a building at 53 Croton Avenue to a limitless virtual library. You can still always find us--on our
, in these email newsletters, by email, and by phone.
We've worked hard to keep our principle mission of inclusion in mind as we virtualize our library, and
our goal with our digital programming, resources, and collections, is to continue to offer something for everyone while we're all at home
. We're excited to continue to expand our virtual programs and resources, to enrich our collections of eBooks and databases, and bring everything you love about OPL to a new virtual format.
We couldn't do any of this without your support, feedback, and guidance.
Thank you all for your grace and flexibility as we navigate this new territory, for making excellent programming and collection suggestions, and for reaching out just to say hello!
We can't wait to be able to tell you all of this in person, but for now, email will have to do:
thank you for all you do for us and for finding your place in our new library world
