National Library Week this year! This event takes place this year from April 12-18, and the theme for this year is "Unlimited possibilities @ your library®."
Sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries -- school, public, academic and special -- participate.
Celebrations during National Library Week include:
• National Library Workers Day, Tuesday of National Library Week (April 14, 2015), a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers;
• National Bookmobile Day, Wednesday of National Library Week (April 15, 2015), a day to recognize the contributions of our nation's bookmobiles and the dedicated professionals who make quality bookmobile outreach possible in their communities; and
• Celebrate Teen Literature Day, Thursday of National Library Week (April 16, 2015), aimed at raising awareness among the general public that young adult literature is a vibrant, growing genre with much to offer today's teens.
I hope you’ll join me in celebrating National Library Week! If you haven’t been to a library in a while, you just might be amazed at all of the products and services they offer, from movies, video games, music CDs and audiobooks to online resources for research, job preparation or just plain fun! Plus, they have events for the whole family to enjoy, from children to seniors! Visit your local library this week!
