Event Description

National Library Week 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.

National Library Week will be observed April 19-25, 2020 with the theme, "Find Your Place at the Library."

Classroom Activity

Most students think of the library as a place to check out books or use technology, but do you know what else your library has to offer? To find out:

Check out your library:

  • Head to your school and public library during National Library Week to see what's new and participate in all they have to offer.

Visit your library online:

  • If you can’t make it to your libraries, visit their website or social media pages to learn about programs and services offered.

Invite in your librarian:

  • Librarians are a wealth of knowledge, about the library itself and all they have to offer. Talk with your librarians to learn more!

Websites is an initiative of the American Library Association (ALA), designed to keep America informed about what’s happening in today’s libraries.

The National Library Week 2018 celebration will mark the 60th anniversary of the first event, sponsored in 1958.
