Libraries are increasingly being used for workspace, classes and community events.
That’s the theme for this year’s National Library Week that starts Monday. Libraries across the country are highlighting their services -- but not those involving the lending of books.
In Peoria, services include programming for English-language learners and hosting public art events. The Peoria Public Library is celebrating National Library Week by offering free, locally-roasted coffee.
Patrons are also invited to participate in a short, writing contest where the winner could receive $100 gift card and a book. More details about the contest and this week's programming are available here.
