Celebrate National Library Week, April 13-19!

 

 

 

 

National Library Week will be observed April 13-19, 2008 with the theme, “Join the circle of knowledge @ your library®.”

 

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.

 

It is also School Library Media Month sponsored by the American Association of School Librarians, a division of ALA, with the same theme as National Library Week.  National Library Workers Day, celebrated the Tuesday of National Library Week (April 15, 2008), is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.

 

Come celebrate these two events by checking out a great book in our media center!  We also have free and new bookmarks for you!
