Did you miss World Book Day yesterday? Have you even heard of it? World Book Day was created by the United Nations in an effort to promote reading, global literacy, publishing, and copyright law around the world.  We librarians like to think that every day could be a day dedicated to those goals and we strive to offer our patrons any book they wish to read.  On World Book Day people are encouraged to dress up like their favorite fictional character.  It is one colorful and creative way to show the world that you are a reader!


A rainy day and a good book! When those two elements come together I’d say you’ve got synergy for a perfect day inside! Just ask Regina Brizendine, owner  of Synergy Media Solutions, and Spokesperson for Kiser Furniture.! The lovely Regina kindly showed her support for our library while taking advantage of a rainy day to enjoy a good book!  What a smart lady! You can get your own books and DVDs on this rainy Saturday from 9:00-4:00!




Smyth-Bland Regional Library will be closed on Saturday, April 15, 2017 for Easter and will resume regular hours on Monday, April 17, 2017.
