Todayâ€™s libraries help level the playing field by making both print and digital information affordable, available and accessible to all people. Libraries provide community gathering spaces and public forums, places for creativity and collaboration, materials in print and electronic formats, job seeking resources, English as second language and citizenship materials, and many other creative and resourceful programs.
Libraries have historically served as our nationâ€™s great equalizers of knowledge. The strength of libraries has always been the diversity of their collections and commitment to serving all people. This National Library Week, join our nationâ€™s libraries and librarians by celebrating the place where we all belong.
First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
