Today marks the second day of National Library Week, which falls between Sunday, April 13th to Saturday, April 19th this year.

National Library Week is a national observance week sponsored by the American Library Association with the intent to celebrate libraries and promote all they do for our communities. This year’s theme is “Lives Change @ Your Library“, and the Honorary Chair of National Library Week is best-selling author and intellectual freedom advocate Judy Blume.

In order to share your love for libraries, the ALA encourages you to print their speech bubble prop (click here for download) and write down how libraries have changed your life. Share your images on Facebook, Twitter, or Flickr and tag them #LivesChange or #NLW14 to spread the word!

Additionally, National Library Worker’s Day falls on the 15th. This day is a day to recognize the value of library staff, administrators, and Friends groups. Here at Pinal County we’re exceptionally proud the staff of the 13 affiliate libraries within our district. We encourage you to get to know the people who help make your local library great by visiting our National Library Week Facebook album.
