This week, we’re excited to be joining libraries around the country in celebrating the ways libraries build strong communities by providing critical resources, programs and expertise.
April 7-13 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Libraries are at the heart of their cities, towns, schools and campuses. They have public spaces where people of all backgrounds can come together and connect.
There are several daily celebrations within National Library Week. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see how we’re recognizing the work of libraries across the country:
While we think it’s great to visit your library every week, if you stop by your favorite Washington County Library branch to say hello to the staff who work there you can also pick up a National Library Week bookmark.
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. Thanks for celebrating with us!
