National Library Week is an annual celebration of libraries which began in 1958. The American Library Association (ALA) in concert with libraries across the nation have designated this week as time to celebrate the contributions of libraries and their dedicated staff.
Libraries have historically served as our nation’s great equalizers of knowledge, providing access to information; leveling the playing field by making information affordable, available, and accessible to all people. Text © Georgia State University. Used with permission.
