Celebrate National Library Week

Celebrate National Library Week 2016 (April 10-16) with the theme "Libraries Transform"

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.

All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.

Celebrations during National Library Week include:

  • National Bookmobile Day, Wednesday of National Library Week (April 13, 2016), a day to recognize the contributions of our nation's bookmobiles and the dedicated professionals who make quality bookmobile outreach possible in their communities; and
