National Library Week
Virtual Program Highlights from the Past Year
The theme for this year’s National Library Week (April 4 – 10, 2021), is Welcome to Your Library, which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building, and that everyone is welcome to use library services.
The American Library Association puts it this way: “During the pandemic, libraries have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their users. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.”
To celebrate National Library Week, we’re highlighting some of your favorite videos and program recordings from the past year, in case you missed them!
