Branch Manager Kathy Jenkins looks at the posters on displayThe month of April is a busy month for library awareness, as it plays host to National Library Week, School Library Media Month and National Library Workers Day.

"Join the circle of knowledge @ your library," was this year's theme for National Library Week, which was April 7-13.

In that spirit, Northwest One Library displayed posters created by students from Spring Mills Middle School in Berkeley County, W.Va.
