This week, the Syracuse-Turkey Creek Township Public Library encourages all community members to visit their library in person or online to explore and access services and programs. Syracuse Public Library offers a wide array of programs, classes and resources for all ages.
April 3-9, 2022, is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
Libraries of all types continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding resources and embracing inclusion in their programming, resources and collections. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources like online homework help and Wi-Fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home. Syracuse Public Library is supporting the community with services such as Homeschool Programs, free Wi-Fi, public computers, hotspot checkouts, a notary, storytimes, arts & crafts programs, and so much more.
This National Library Week, the public can show their appreciation and support for libraries by visiting their library in person or online, following them on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.

We've got quite a few new DVD titles in during the month of April, from blockbuster titles to documentaries and the latest TV series. Some of these titles release later in the month. Titles with asterisks are brand new to SPL for April.
The Syracuse Public Library’s adult book club will read The Higher Power of Lucky by Susan Patron as its April pick.
Believing that her French guardian is about to abandon her to an orphanage in the city, 10-year-old Lucky runs away from her small town with her beloved dog by her side in order to trek across the Mojave Desert in this Newbery Medal-winning novel from Susan Patron.
Discussions will occur at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 19, via Zoom and at 1 p.m. Thursday, April 21, in the downstairs meeting room.
Copies of The Higher Power of Lucky are available at the Syracuse Public Library. Patrons can also check out a digital audiobook on Libby/OverDrive.
