National Library Week was established in 1958 by the American Library Association and is celebrated each April by all types of libraries: school, public, academic and special. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians, and to promote library use and support.

National Library Week 2010 is celebrated with the theme "Communities thrive @ your library." Please join us April 12 - 16, 2010 for a week of festivities. Daily Prize drawings
