Game Of Thrones author George R.R. Martin once wrote, "A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone, to keep it sharp". With that in mind, April 10th is the kick off for National School Library Week!

It's another reason to encourage students to get into their local school library because great things are happening! Events are scheduled at area library's all over Central Texas, so be sure and ask your local librarian what's coming up! We've found a few to get you started!

If your going to be close to the Copperas Cover Public Library on Monday morning, stop by for Muffin Monday! Visitors who check out a book will be able to grab a muffin on their way out (while they last)! Teen Thursday at Copperas Cove Public Library will feature a 3D design contest using the facilities 3D printer!

The Library at Central Texas College will offer students Superhero events all week long! They've even got a "Call Number Caper" scavenger hunt this Tuesday, which uses books to help participants find clues to solve a mystery phrase.

The library at S.C. Lee Jr. High participates in 'World Read Aloud' day this week, and the Temple Public Library invites parents and infants (from birth to 12 months) to come by on Tuesday for 'Baby Bookworms' (an hour of book sharing, songs, and parachute play).

Sponsored by the American Library Association, National Library Week runs thru the 16th. Many library's offer incentives such as Free books to students, and chances to meet and discuss writing with published authors. It just might be the spark a student needs to jumpstart their love for books! For more info on events happening near you, contact your local library or visit the American Library Association online. Happy Reading!
