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.
