National Library week continues

National Library Week is April 13-19, with several events planned at Rowan Public Library.
The Friends of the Library will have its annual meeting Thursday at 7 p.m. featuring the authors of “Boarding House Reach: North Carolina’s Entrepreneurial Women.”
Alice Sink and Nickie Doyal will talk about a “colorful gallery of women proprietors of the state’s boarding houses, from colonial times to the modern period.” The book includes pictures and some recipes that would have graced the boarding house table. Books will be available for sale and signing by the authors and refreshments will be served at the headquarters library in Salisbury.
The grand opening celebration for the East Branch’s new Children’s Library is Wednesday, from noon-2 p.m., at the East Branch library in Rockwell.
April’s Tuesday Night at the Movies series features films that have won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. Tonight at 6:30 p.m. will be “Day for Night,” a 1973 French film. Free popcorn and lemonade will be served at the headquarters library in Salisbury.
“Every day, libraries in big cities and small towns help transform their communities,” says Suzanne White, public services supervisor. “At our library, people of all backgrounds can come together for community meetings, lectures and programs and to do research with the assistance of a trained professional, to get a job or to find homework help, and to access both library materials and powerful online tools.”
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April.
