This week, the Charles W. & Joan S. Coker Library at Coker College joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers.  

Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study.  Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape their communities and address local issues. 

Librarians work with elected officials, small business owners, students, college administrators, faculty and the public at large to discover what their communities needs are and meet them.  Librarians listen to the community they serve, and they respond.

The Charles W. & Joan S. Coker Library serves Coker College by providing print, audio visual and electronic resources that support the curriculum and the academic research of our students and faculty. Service to the college community has always been the focus of the library. While this aspect has never changed, our library has grown and evolved in how we provide for the needs of every member of the Coker College community.  We are celebrating National Library Week with daily activities. Stop the library and check out the egg hunt, giveaways and food.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.  

For more information, visit library’s Web site at  Libraries hours this week are Monday through Thursday 7:30am to 12:00am; Good Friday 10:00am to 5:00pm; Saturday 12:00pm to 5:00pm; and Easter Sunday 1:00pm to 12:00am.
