With our involvement and total support for the ''Hip-Hop Literacy Campaign'', and trying to motivate the hip-hop community to read we wanted to recognize that this is National Library Week.

This is the start of National Library Week, noting the pleasure and importance of reading and urging support for your local library.

It was on April 3rd in 1848 that the Massachusetts legislature allowed the city of Boston to levy a tax for a public library, an act which became a funding model for all such institutions in the U.S.

There are more than 16-thousand public libraries across the country. Books and periodicals remain at the core, but most libraries are adding modern technology to their ways of providing information. Many also loan out music CDs and DVD movies.

The Internet is also of increasing importance as a research tool, with nearly all libraries offering public access. The average library has 10 workstations available for public use.

You can find these and more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau on the Web at http://www.census.gov

Find out more about ''Hip-Hop Literacy'' Campaign founder Raoul Juneja (a.k.a. hip-Hop's Deejay Ra) and the ''Hip-Hop Literacy'' high school and college radio campaign at http://www.lyricalknockout.com .

Knowledge is power – Read.
