National Library Week 2011: Telling Their Own Stories
National Library Week (NLW) 2011 was observed April 10–16, with the theme, “Create your own story @ your library.” Libraries nationwide hosted programs in honor of the week that included a focus on bookmobiles, children, wise use of money, reading, library workers, bookmobiles, teens, and preservation.
First sponsored in 1958, NLW is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and celebrated in libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries—school, public, academic, and special—participate.’
