April 12 through April 18, the Highland Park Library joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers.

Libraries today are more than warehouses for books. Instead, libraries and librarians are change agents within their communities - whether through offering e-books, technology, innovative educational resources, online databases, reading programs, and story times - librarians listen to the community they serve and respond.

The theme for National Library Week is Unlimited Possibilities @ Your Library. Visit the Children’s Room in the Library to view the unlimited possibilities of artistic creativity. Currently on display are outstanding pieces of artwork by students of Highland Park Independent School District from kindergarten through high school. The artwork includes impressionist style paintings, mixed media collages, clay sculptures, pencil and ink drawings, and more, and will be on display until the middle of May.

While visiting the Library, apply for your library card if you do not already have one. There is no charge for a Highland Park Library card if you are a resident of the Town of Highland Park. The Library is located at 4700 Drexel Drive, 75205 and is open Tuesday through Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For more information, visit the library online at or call 214-559-9400.
