Happy National Library Week, Friends! Here Is A Special Collection For You!

National Library Week is here and we will be celebrating all week long...April 8-14, 2018. This is a week to celebrate our nation's libraries and all of the wonderful library workers that make a difference in libraries every day.  

The theme of this years National Library Week is Libraries Lead, which couldn't be a more perfect theme!  We want to make sure all types of libraries lead from school, public, academic and special libraries as they participate every year in this important event. 

To make this celebration sponsored by the American Library Association even more special, National Library Week 2018 will mark the 60th anniversary of the first event which was held in 1958.  
The 2018 National Library Week Honorary Chair is American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer, Misty Copeland.  I love the quote that you will find on the promotional materials for National Library Week....

Discover your passions and achieve your goals at the library.  
Throughout the week, you will see there are special events on each day.  I can't wait for these daily celebrations!  Make sure you use the hashtags they mention when sharing how you will celebrate each day too. 
I have pulled together lots of resources, ideas, tools and other fun in the National School Week Collection by Destiny you will find here.   Please let me know what else we should add or if you would like to collaborate on this one with me.  I'd love to have you help. 

Happy National Library Week, friends.  

Thank you to all of the people that work in school, public, special and other types of libraries in our nation, and around the world.  You make a difference for the communities you serve and bring so much to the individuals within them.
