National Library Workers Day is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.  I bet there is someone at the CRRL that you'd like to recognize for helping you out.

Got a favorite storytime reader?  Submit a star for them!  Did someone at the library help you with a school project or teach you a new craft?  Submit a star for them!  Did a reference librarian help you find information you needed or write a book match for you?  Submit a star for them!

Thanks to all the staff and volunteers at the CRRL for making it part of a thriving community.
