Exchange Food for Fines, learn how to get published during National Library Week

NLW2015 Banner 200x300National Library Week is April 12-18 – and it is a time to recognize the importance of libraries to the communities they serve.
Whether you are a job seeker looking for resources to land a new job, a parent looking for free activities for children or a student searching for your next favorite book, you belong at your library.
Today’s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people. Libraries provide cultural heritage and genealogical collections, materials in print and electronic formats, job seeking resources, English as a second language and citizenship classes and many other creative and resourceful programs.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
The Atlantic City Free Public Library’s plans for National Library Week include:
•    ‘Food for Fines’ exchange from April 13-18 – Library members with overdue materials can make a food donation at the Main Library or Richmond Branch Library in lieu of paying a fine. For each non-perishable item donated during National Library Week, the accrued fines for one overdue item will be waived. The donated food will be given to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey-Southern Branch.
•    Tips on How to Get Published on Saturday, April 18, at 2:30 p.m. — Kathleen Volk Miller, Director of Drexel University’s Graduate Program in Publishing Program and Co-editor of Painted Bride Quarterly, will talk about the publishing industry.
