First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It 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. This year (2008) National Library Week is April 13-19.
We can celebrate our libraries year ’round though, just by using its resources and spreading the good word about your library.
