National Library Week 2021
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country.
April 4-10 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to your library,” which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Whether you visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery, and exploration.
How Can You Support Libraries During National Library Week?
-Visit your library online or in person. Whether you're visiting in person or virtually, libraries offer the opportunity to explore new worlds through access to technology, digital content, and educational programs. Take time to connect with your library during National Library Week to see all they have to offer.
-Participate in the #MyLibraryIs promotion on social media. Celebrate National Library Week 2021 by sharing what you love about the resources and services available at your library. Post to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook about an e-book, audiobook, virtual storytime, or how your library has made a difference while you've been social distancing at home. If you love your library, say it loud and proud. You could win a $100 Visa gift card from the American Library Association.
