What is National Library Week?
National library Week is an observance held by libraries across the country every year in the second week of April. It is a time to promote and celebrate the wonderful contributions of our local libraries and encourage additional library use and support. During this week, libraries will host special events centered on a special theme. This year’s theme is, "Communities thrive @ your library®." These events are designed to encourage reading and celebrate the staff and volunteers who work so hard to make our libraries a success.
