National Library Worker’s Day

March 21, 2011

This year Tuesday, April 12th has been designated National Library Worker’s Day. Please take a minute to acknowledge or express your appreciation to a library staff member who has provided you with assistance or help in any way.  Speaking from experience, those of us who have chosen librarianship as a career have done so because of the great reward that comes from helping others and we hope we have made a positive difference in your learning experience here at Gateway.
