Celina Library Events

April 3-9, 2022 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year‚Äôs National Library Week is ‚ÄúConnect with Your Library,‚ÄĚ which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology by using broadband, computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media, programs, ideas and classes, in addition to books. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.

Stop by the Celina location anytime that week to be entered into drawing for gift cards to local area businesses.
