Celebrate National Library Week!

National Library Week is an annual celebration of libraries and library workers. This year’s theme, Libraries = Strong Communities, puts the focus on the important role that libraries play in their communities—cities, towns, schools and campuses—by providing critical resources, programs, expertise and space for all community members to come together to connect and learn.

Help us recognize National Library Week here at the Bentley Library.

Visit our lobby to:

  • browse the pop-up display of books and films that feature libraries and librarians
  • post a message on the whiteboard telling us what you love about the library
  • take a button to show your support for libraries

Support a library that has impacted you.

Libraries across the nation will be using this week to raise awareness for their resources, services, and staff. If there is a public or school library that means something to you, take some time to voice your appreciation and support.

Tag the library in a social media post, stop in to share a kind word with the library staff, or send a letter of support to their administrators/board. Public libraries in particular rely on vocal community support to help them secure the funding that they need. Follow and use #NationalLibraryWeek, #NLW2019, #LibrariesTransform and #MyLibraryMyStory on Twitter and Instagram to add your support.
