What is National Library Week?

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, National Library Week is April 8-14, 2018.  2018 also marks the 60th anniversary of the very first National Library Week event.

National Library Week is April 8-14, 2018
