“Join the circle of knowledge @ your library.”
National Library Week has been observed to recognize the contributions of our nation’s libraries, and of course librarians! Many school libraries will also celebrate the month of April as School Library Media Month. This year, National Library Week will be observed April 13 – 19 with the theme “Join the circle of knowledge @ your library.” I am sure many of you will be planning activities and events to promote your library media center at your school.
