National Library Week 2017: Libraries Transform

"Libraries Transform" is the theme for National Library Week, April 9-15, 2017.

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. 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.

Celebrate National Library Week by following the Darling Library on Facebook and Twitter @darling_library. Use the hashtags #MyDarlingLibrary, #NationalLibraryWeek, and #LibrariesTransform to join the celebration on social media. You can even add a "Libraries Transform" Twibbon to your profile!


Library Quote of the Day

“Information helps you to see that you're not alone. That there's somebody in Mississippi and somebody in Tokyo who all have wept, who've all longed and lost, who've all been happy. So the library helps you to see, not only that you are not alone, but that you're not really any different from everyone else.” - Maya Angelou (1928-2014)
