Celebrate National Library Week 2017

All it takes is one book and your life is changed forever. This year’s theme for National Library Week (April 9-15) is Libraries Transform.

National Library Week began in 1958 and is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA). Every April, libraries across the country celebrate accomplishments and get the whole library community involved. At the Weinberg Memorial Library, we strive to follow our Jesuit Mission to support students and community patrons every day. Libraries do transform a community and a book can transform each patron.

So many books have influenced me in my lifetime, but the two books that have absolutely changed my life are The Bible (7th grade) and the Harry Potter Series (sophomore year of college). They have most definitely transformed the way I view the world. The Weinberg Memorial Library staff wants to know, which titles transformed your worldview? In the space below, please take a moment and respond with your favorite transformative book!
