NATICK, Mass. – This is National Library Week and some local public libraries want you to know the celebration is about more than just books in the Commonwealth.

Anna Litten is the community relations coordinator at the Morse Institute Library in Natick.

Morse Institute may sound like some kind of think tank, but Litten says it is just one of the Commonwealth's many public libraries.

"I like to think about libraries as being a destination for ideas more than a destination for books,” she states. “Frequently, those ideas live in books, but they can live in lots of other places. "

Nationwide, libraries are working to showcase how local branches are delivering new services to small businesses and new Americans.

The theme of National Library Week 2016 is Libraries Transform.

Litten says today's event in Natick is a good example of how people can draw inspiration and new ideas from many things in their lives.

"Today we are going to be hearing a concert by students from the Walnut Hill School of the Arts,” she points out. “I'm really excited about that. It's going to be some chamber ensembles, and that’s going to be at one o'clock here in the library."

On Friday the Morse Library will host a Reader's Appreciation Day where the focus is on pulling up a comfy chair and spending time with a good book.
