On Thursday, April 17th, library staff from across New Hanover County celebrated National Library Week with a Bowl-A-Rama. Teams from Cape Fear Community College, UNCW, the New Hanover County Public Library, and local school libraries (including: Parsley Elementary, Winter Park Elementary, Wrightsville Beach Elementary, Holly Shelter Middle School, and Laney High School) competed in a single-elimination tournament with the victor donating the proceeds to the charity of their choosing.
