National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021) is an opportunity to raise awareness of and celebrate the value and impact of your library.

2021 Theme

The theme for National Library Week, Welcome to Your Library, promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Natalie Portman is 2021 National Library Week Honorary Chair.
