National Library Week April 4 - 10, 2021: Home

Ways to Celebrate National Library Week

Visit your library [online]

Whether you're visiting in person or virtually, libraries offer the opportunity to explore new worlds through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs. Take time to connect with your library during National Library Week to see all they have to offer.

Sit in on A National Library Week Conversation with Dan Rather

Join Booklist's Donna Seaman and Dan Rather for a live conversation about his recent book, "What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism" in celebration of Take Action for Libraries Day, on Thursday, April 8. 

Registration is free and open to all, but space is limited, so sign up now. The event is sponsored by United for Libraries, Booklist, and the American Library Association.

Participate in the #MyLibraryIs promotion on social media

Celebrate National Library Week 2021 by sharing what you love about the resources and services available at your library. Post to Instagram, Twitter, or on the I Love Libraries Facebook page,  about an e-book, audiobook, virtual storytime or bookclub, or how your library has made a difference while you've been social distancing at home. Use the hashtag #MyLibraryIs.  We'll gather all the entries, and one randomly selected winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card.  The promotion starts Sunday, April 4 at noon CT and ends on Saturday, April 10 at noon CT. Don’t forget to tag your library!

If you love your library, say it loud and proud: vocal community support helps libraries secure much-needed funding and reminds hardworking library staff that their efforts are appreciated. Participating in the #MyLibraryIs promotion is a quick, easy way to help your library thrive!

Follow your library, ALA, and I Love Libraries on social media

Be sure to follow your library on social media so you don't miss out on all they have to offer, including the most reliable information about keeping your family safe during these uncertain times.

Post one of our available graphics to your social media account and join the conversation by using the hashtags #NationalLibraryWeek and #LibrariesTransform.

Don't forget to follow the American Library Association and I Love Libraries on social media!
