NAMPA, Ida. — This Sunday is the start of National Library Week and the Nampa Public Library is getting ready to celebrate! This year's theme is "Libraries = Strong Communities."

A recent Nampa Library survey asked the question, "What role should the library play in the city?" One answer said the library should be a place where people of all ages and groups can spend time doing thing together. The patron continued, saying libraries are a pillar of respect for the scholar, a place of escape for the adventurer, and a safe playdate for families.

Nampa Library is inviting the community out for a couple of events to celebrate. From 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10, join the library for Patron Hot Dog Day! Idaho Theater for Youth 2019 will also present "The Magician's Nephew" on Thursday, April 11, at 6 p.m.

National Library Week started in 1958 and is a time to celebrate all the contributions of our nation's libraries, librarians, and to promote library use and support. From free access to books and online resources for families to meeting rooms that help support local businesses and individuals, libraries offer opportunity to all.
