April 9-15 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. During this week, the Destin Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the many ways libraries are transforming their communities ever day through the services and invaluable expertise they offer.


The Destin Library is celebrating National Library Week by hosting a musical performance at noon on Tuesday, April 11. Attendees are encouraged to bring their lunch and picnic on the lovely grounds of the library. The following morning the annual Easter Egg hunt will take place “in the stacks”. This event requires pre-registration.


“The library embraces the entire community, offering unlimited opportunities for personal growth and lifelong learning,” said Jurate Burns, library director. “Libraries level the playing field for people of any age who are seeking the information and access to technologies that will improve their quality of life.”


At the Destin Library we are transforming by offering one-on-one instruction on mobile devices and computers. We offer a state-of-the-art media lab where you can record and edit commercials or school projects. 


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