Libraries are vital parts of schools and communities, helping millions of people across the country every day. Library programs support all forms of literacy and encourage a love of lifelong learning. Each April, School Library Month honors the key role school libraries play in enriching students’ educational development. This year’s theme emphasizes all the wonderful reasons “You belong @ your library.” This message is shared by National Library Week, April 8-14. Since 1958, this week has been dedicated to spotlighting the great work of libraries and librarians in providing free opportunities and promoting learning for all.
