Share this post:

April 10-16, 2011, is National Library Week. This year’s theme is “Create your own story @ your library.” John Grisham is the Honorary Chair. April 12th was also National Library Workers Day . “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.”  The Los Angeles Times blog, Jacket Copy, pointed out:

As libraries have faced budget cutbacks nationwide, National Library Week is a time when they can be the focus of positive attention.
