This is the slogan for National Library Week in Illinois, a week during which people working for libraries strive to inform fellow citizens of the library services and re- sources available. The "Right to Read" in the slogan is borrowed from the U. S. Office of Educa- tion's Right to Read program for the 1970's which has as its target the elimination of illiteracy by 1980. As its primary focus, the program is concentrating on teaching children and millions of illiterate and semi-literate adults in our nation to read. However, the program is broader in scope than just help ing people to learn to read; it is also aimed at making reading materials available, and in this regard, libraries have a vital role to play. Ideally, every horary would have resources on a wide range of subject matter and on all levels of reading kJlL How- ever, not every library can reach this goal so libraries work to- gether to provide their reading public with those materials need- ed and desired. In a sense, library cooperation programs make millions of books available on request through li- brary systems. Mount Pulaski Townslup Library belongs to the Rolling Prairie Libraries System. During National Library Week, April 18 - 24, Mount Pul- aski Township Library urges all citizens to make use of their right to know - or, in the words of the National Library Week Committee, "You have a Right to Read - Don't Blow It!" The Mt. Pulaski Library is open from 3 to 8 p.m. Monday thru Thursday, and from 10 aan. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays. It is closed Fridays. During National Library Week, it is celebrating with open house every afternoon from 3 to 5:00 p.m., with refreshments being served in the library by ladies of the following clubs which meet in the downstairs club room: Mt.
