Celebrate National Library Week


Join us in celebrating the 60th anniversary of National Library Week April 8-14, 2018 with the theme, “Libraries Lead.”

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.

This year, you can celebrate with us a few different ways! The first is by dropping by any time during the week and making a magnet to stick on our lockers! We’ll also have a button design contest for kids: kids design buttons, library staff will vote for the best design, and we’ll make it an official Delaware City Library button, handed out to everyone coming in from April 15-30! Lastly, on April 9, kids and teens can decorate bookends to be displayed in the children’s area.

Happy National Library Week!
