Durham County Library, in partnership with Durham Library Foundation, is hosting the inaugural Library Fest Monday, April 5, through Saturday, April 10, 2021. Library Fest is a community celebration during National Library Week that showcases the library system’s exceptional services. With speaker events featuring The Vanishing Half author Brit Bennett, Transcendent Kingdom author Yaa Gyasi, “Purple STEAM” artist Volkan Alkanoglu, and YouTuber Daniel Davis (aka Tinkernut), to name a few, Library Fest will be a diverse representation of the many ways the library can be a part of our lives.
While Library Fest will feature a community reading program with opportunities for readers to engage with authors and illustrators, there’s more to it than just books! Some of the many services we will be highlighting include our new Business Services department, our makerspaces, our support for the arts and humanities, our North Carolina Collection, our new gaming and media center, our outreach to the Hispanic community, and much more. To learn more about the programs offered and registration, visit DurhamCountyLibrary.org/LibraryFest.
