Celebrate National Library Week April 19-25, 2020

Jan 23, 2020

It’s not too early to think about how you’ll celebrate National Library Week, planned this year for April 19-25. The theme for the 2020 celebration is “Find Your Place at the Library.” The American Library Association offers free promotional tools that include press releases, PSAs, and ready-made graphics.

Celebrations during National Library Week include:

  • Monday, April 20: State of America’s Libraries Report released, including the Top Ten Frequently Challenged Books of 2019.
  • Tuesday, April 21: National Library Workers Day, a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.
  • Wednesday, April 22: National Bookmobile Day, a day to recognize the contributions of our nation’s bookmobiles and the dedicated professionals who make quality bookmobile outreach possible in their communities.
  • Thursday, April 23: Take Action for Libraries Daya day to rally advocates to support libraries.

Also — if your library has celebrated National Library Week with an engaging campaign, the American Library Association wants to hear from you! They’re planning a webinar to share creative and fun ideas for how libraries of all types can use NLW for public awareness and community outreach efforts. This is a great opportunity to highlight your library and its successes, so email campaign@ala.org to share your story.

National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.
