National Library Week is April 13-19, 2014


National Library Week is April 13-19, 2014

In the mid 1950’s, worried that Americans were spending less on books and more on televisions, the American Library Association (ALA) and its sponsors decided to annually observe National Library Week. The ALA believed “that once people were motivated to read, they would support and use libraries.” Each April since 1958, the ALA and libraries across the country have observed and participated in National Library week.

Next week, celebrate the contributions of your library! Join TJSL Library on the week-long full of fun, including: prizes for the most creative excuses for an overdue library book, cake, and a chance to win an Apple iPod Shuffle! Keep an eye out for an email with more details.
