National Library Week (April 4 – 10, 2021) is a time to celebrate our nation’s libraries, library workers’ contributions and promote library use and support.
The theme for National Library Week 2021 is “Welcome to Your Library.”
During the pandemic, library workers continue to exceed their communities’ demands and adapt resources and services to meet their users’ needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and observed in libraries across the country each April. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.
The new Libraries Transform Because Statement, Because investing in libraries is an investment in our communities, was created especially for Take Action for Libraries Day, Thursday of National Library Week. Check out all the Because Statements at librariestransform.org, many have messages that are a great fit for National Library Week. Registration is required, but the tools are free!
