Book Lover’s Day is coming soon. Celebrated every year on August 9, this unofficial holiday is celebrated around the world, although no one is quite sure of its origin. Either way, book lovers around the world never need an excuse to celebrate their love of books. If you need some ideas, here are seven ways to celebrate Book Lover’s Day.
1: Volunteer at the library. We are always looking for volunteers to help our six branches. Volunteers help with many tasks, including processing materials, assisting other patrons, and shelving library materials. Each of the county’s Friends Groups, which raise funds and support libraries, is also run entirely by volunteers. We truly value each of our volunteers. If you’re interested, stop by your local library and fill out an application.
Jess Shelleman is the branch manager of the Littlestown Library.
