It's National Library Week!

It's #NationalLibraryWeek!

Did you know that there are 119,729 libraries in the United States? That includes academic, public, school, and special libraries, but still, that's a lot! In fact, there are more public libraries than McDonald's restaurants in this country.

And now, libraries are busier than they've ever been. There were 1.5 billion in-person visits to public libraries just last year!

But that doesn't include how many people use online resources libraries provide. Here at St. Kate's we know you use our databases to find materials whether you're in the library building or sitting on your couch. We work hard to make sure we have resources you can use both in and outside the library building.

 For more on what libraries are like in this new digital age, check out this great video highlighting what we do:

So show your love for libraries during #NationalLibraryWeek. Libraries rule!

And, as always, if you need help finding resources, Ask a Librarian.
