St. Johns County Public Library System Set to Kick-off National Library Week

The St. Johns County Public Library System invites the community to celebrate National Library Week beginning April 10th. National Library Week is an annual celebration of all types of libraries, with the theme this year being “Create Your Own Story @ Your Library.” This year’s library week honorary chair is one of the world’s most popular storytellers, best-selling author John Grisham.

Each branch library in St. Johns County has many different events planned throughout the week, including theater, genealogy class, parties with Cookie Mouse, Bingo for Books, storytimes and more.
