Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other
resources. Often the heart of their communities, libraries are deeply
committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study.
Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather
to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the
community and address local issues.
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.
