Friends of the Library groups and libraries across the country will be celebrating the 10th annual National Friends of Libraries Week October 18-24, 2015. This week-long event promotes Friends groups in their communities and gives libraries and boards of trustees the opportunity to recognize the Friends for their help and support of the library.
Materials are available to celebrate National Friends of Libraries Week at www.ala.org/united/events_conferences/folweek. These include promotional ideas, editable publicity materials, camera-ready bookmarks, and ideas from past celebrations.
In conjunction with National Friends of Libraries Week, two awards of $250 will be given to Friends of the Library groups for activities held during the celebration. Application materials are available at www.ala.org/united/grants_awards/friends/friendsweek. Entries are due by Dec. 2, 2015.
