National Library Week celebrates all things library, and this year’s nationwide campaign takes place Sunday, April 14 through Saturday, April 20. The theme: Communities matter.

Roseville’s public libraries are hosting an open house at 4:30 p.m. Monday, April 15, at the Downtown Roseville Library, 225 Taylor St. There will also be a “read with a special guest,” like a firefighter or police officer, throughout the week.

Anyone who has a Roseville Public Library card can take advantage of free fitness classes at the Roseville Sports Center or Maidu Community Center, free Recreational Swim at the Indoor Pool and get in for free at the campfire at the Maidu Museum & Historic Site at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 19.

The local libraries are also kicking off its “Libraries Change Lives” campaign, in which staff is seeking feedback from customers about how libraries, books and reading have impacted their lives. People can message the libraries on their Facebook page, follow them on Twitter @RSVL_Libraries, email them or stop into any of the libraries and share their thoughts.
