From April 7-13, we celebrate the vital role libraries play in our lives and communities.
And one woman who knows this as well as anyone is Melinda Gates, author of the upcoming THE MOMENT OF LIFT: How Empowering Women Changes the World.
Melinda was chosen as this year’s National Library Week Honorary Chair and spoke at ALA Midwinter in Seattle about the importance of libraries. Click here or the image above to watch part of her speech.
