National Library Week
National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.
The theme for National Library Week (April 4-10), “Welcome to Your Library,” promoted the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services.

Library Card Sign-up Month
Each year thousands of public and school libraries come together each September in a national effort to remind parents and children that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Library Card Sign-up Month was launched in 1987.
Marley Dias, founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, author and executive producer, is honorary chair of Library Card Sign-Up Month in 2021. This September, Dias will join the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide in promoting the power of a library card.
