National Library Week

It’s time to celebrate the nation’s libraries! National Library Week 2024 is April 7 – 13, with other promotions such as Library Giving Day having started on April 3. In our always-online world, libraries give us a green light to something truly special: a place to connect with others, learn new skills, and focus on what matters most.

No matter where you find yourself on the roadmap through life’s journey – preparing for a new career, launching a business, or raising a family – your library provides an inclusive and supportive community where everyone belongs. Come to your nearest Chandler Public Library to find resources including:

  • Events and programming for all ages, from children’s storytime and gaming for teens to book discussion groups and crafty activities for adults;
  • Technology resources such as free wi-fi, free public computers and free outbound faxing, plus printing at 10 cents per page for black and white or 25 cents for color;
  • The Book & Board Library Lounge at the Chandler Downtown Library, featuring coffee and snacks as well as games that can be played in the lounge or checked out;
  • The Makery on the second floor of the Chandler Downtown Library, a free do-it-yourself space that provides access to various makerspace machinery to prototype and create physical objects;
  • The Seed Library at the Sunset Location, with free seasonal seeds to “check out” – three packets per month per household, while supplies last;
  • Culture Passes at all four Chandler Library locations, which give you 2 free general admissions to various cultural venues in Arizona (availability varies):
  • Community assistance for people in need and a job center to help with resumes and job searches;
  • And don’t forget – all the books, magazines and newspapers you can read in house, and check out with your current Chandler Library card!

Get ready to explore, become inspired, and connect with your library this National Library Week. Libraries are there for you, all the way to the finish line.
