How can you celebrate National Library Week?

1. Visit your library

Whether you're visiting in person or virtually, libraries offer the opportunity to explore new worlds through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs. Take time to connect with your library during National Library Week to see all they have to offer.

2. What's Your Library Story? Tell us for a chance to win.

National Library Week Honorary Chair Kelly Yang found the courage to pursue her dreams through access to resources at her childhood library and the support of librarians. What role has the library played in your life?
Did you find inspiration in a book? Get help finding a job or starting a business? Have you made new friends at the library?

Tell the American Library Association by posting to Instagram, Twitter, or on the I Love Libraries Facebook page. Use the hashtag #MyLibraryStory

If you love your library, help us and the American Library Association make some noise during National Library Week. There's never been a more important moment to show your support.
