Plan Now for National Library Week

As most American librarians know, the next National Library Week will take place April 11-17. It's time now to plan how you're going to promote your library and to order any promo items you'll need.

National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians. All types of libraries (school, public, academic and corporate/special) participate. More importantly, it' a time where we should all try to raise awareness about libraries and library services. Call attention to all the great products, services, and experts you have!

This year's theme is Communities Thrive @ your library.

You'll find all the info and lots of promotional materials at ALA's National Library Week web page. There, you can download ready-made public service announcements (PSAs) in both English and Spanish. There's also a badge you can put on your website, as well as customizable letters to the editor, logos, and more.

There's also a Fact Sheet about NLW and special event-themed products for sale from ALA Graphics.
