The American Library Association encourages you to celebrate National Library Week, April 14-20, with the theme Communities matter @ your library.

Local free public libraries continue to provide equal access to literature—from the classics to the latest best-sellers—to all members of their communities. Whether you’re wealthy or poor, educated or not, libraries provide you with great works of literature.

Literature has the power to transform lives. Libraries provide the books—the tangible resources—to help make those transformations happen.

Whether you’re running a Changing Lives Through Literature alternative sentencing group or some other literature discussion group, encourage your members to continue reading and thinking about literature.

Find out how your community matters to your local library by visiting your library during National Library Week. Comment on this blog post to share with us how you participated in National Library Week.

    Yes, libraries keep us free. They are the great storehouses of our knowledge, just as books remain our greatest hope for the ongoing development of our humanity–bound and bounding forward.
