The theme for National Library Week 2015 is Unlimited possibilities @ your library.

Today's libraries are more than just books. Increasingly, they are places of creativity where people can meet to share a hobby, use a 3D printer, edit a video, or use software to record their own music. Libraries offer access to the tools and technology essential to the economic and cultural lives of their communities.

Help us demonstrate the Unlimited possibilities available @ your library by sharing what the library has helped you to create.

Did you research or write your book, learn how to make a hand-knitted scarf or culinary creation? Have you used the library’s 3D printer or produced a video? Did the library help you find a new job or get your small business off the ground? Or perhaps the library’s homework help service made a difference in your child's last report card.
