National Library Week Runs Through April 25

The Rochester Hills Public Library invites community members to find the library at their place by visiting to access virtual services and resources. While the library’s physical space may be temporarily closed due to COVID-19, the public can discover ebooks, audiobooks, movies, online tutoring and educational resources, storytime activities, and more.

“Find Your Place at the Library” during National Library Week,
April 19-25

National Library Week runs through April 25. It’s a time to highlight the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for local libraries by visiting their library’s websites, following them on social media, and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek in their posts.

In times of crisis, libraries respond to their community’s needs in innovative and inspiring ways. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, libraries of all types are continuing to make a difference in people’s lives by providing online learning resources, including virtual homework help, online crafting, and DIY sessions, as well as information about keeping your family healthy and safe. On the Rochester Hills Public Library’s website and social media channels, there is a wide array of virtual services for kids, teens, and adults.

“Libraries are essential when we are experiencing change and our world is experiencing change at an unprecedented rate,” said Juliane Morian, director of the Rochester Hills Public Library. “Libraries help us make sense of what we don’t understand, find empathy for what we have not personally felt, and create space for what comes next.  Libraries are change-makers and resilience builders.”

Now is also the time to sign-up for a library card. Residents, business owners, and employees living and working in Rochester, Rochester Hills, and Oakland Township can apply for an RHPL card online and access virtual resources right away.
