About National Library Week:
The American Library Association in conjunction with the National Book Committee sponsored the first National Library Week in 1958 as a response to a 1957 survey that found that only 17% of Americans were currently reading a book. National Library Week continues as an annual event that promotes libraries of all types across the United States.
Libraries continue to grow beyond their original perception as repositories of books and computer banks to their current position as recognized community and cultural centers that promote learning and social connection. Libraries are often seen as the heart of their community, whether it’s a small town, a city, or a university campus.
During the pandemic, library workers adapted resources and services to meet their users’ needs during these challenging times. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer endless opportunities to transform lives through education and lifelong learning.
