National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021) is an opportunity to raise awareness of and celebrate the value and impact of your library.
The theme this year is “Welcome to Your Library” to promote the idea that libraries extend far beyond four walls – and everyone is welcome to use its services.
Share Your Story
During COVID-19, Georgia’s public libraries have gone above and beyond to adapt to the changing needs of their community. Be sure to share stories of how you are serving your community during National Library Week and beyond!
Please encourage your patrons to share how the library has impacted their lives using #mylibrarystory.
Tools from ALA can also help your planning. Visit their toolkit for additional information and resources.
