National Library Week 10-16, 2011

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and by local libraries across the country every year during the month of April.

The 2011 theme is “Create your own story @ your library..."

National Library Week not only pays tribute to libraries as centers of learning. It also gives thanks to local librarians for their knowledge and expertise during National Library Workers Day observed every year on Tuesday of National Library Week, this year held on April 12, 2011.
