National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.
This year’s theme, Libraries = Strong Communities, illustrates how today’s libraries are at the heart of our cities, towns, schools and campuses, providing critical resources, programs and expertise. They also provide a public space where all community members, regardless of age, culture or income level, can come together to connect and learn.
Also, share your story online using #MyLibraryMyStory & #EverettReads for a chance to win a prize from the American Library Association; one randomly selected participant will receive a $100 VISA gift card. The promotion begins Sunday, April 7 at 10 a.m. and ends April 13 at 10 a.m.
