Since 1958, the American Library Association has chosen a week in April to celebration National Library Week. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.
National Library Week is April 12-18th this year, and the national theme is “Endless Possibilities @ Your Library.” UST Libraries will be celebrating from April 13-17th and have come up with a variety of programs and events throughout the week. We are excited to share it all with you!
