Happy National Library Week!

Libraries across Missouri join schools, campuses and communities nationwide as they highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers during National Library Week, April 13-19, 2014.

National Library Week, which was established by the American Library Association (ALA) as a national observance in 1958, includes National Library Workers Day (April 15th), National Bookmobile Day (April 16th), and Celebrate Teen Literature Day (April 17th). (source)
