Know Any Stellar Library Workers? Time to Nominate Some Stars

Get ready for this year’s celebration of National Library Workers Day (NLWD) which will be held on Tuesday, April 11, 2017. You can start by nominating stellar library workers. Individuals are encouraged to “submit a star.”  Libraries, communities and organizations are encouraged to hold celebrations and recognize library employees.

Held each year on the Tuesday of National Library Week, NLWD was established by the American Library Association’s Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA) for the purpose of acknowledging all library workers, including librarians, support staff and others who make library service possible every day.

You can find suggestions for ways to celebrate on the ALA-APA NLWD ideas web page.  Or, if you have your own ideas, send them to us (libraryworklife@ala.lorg) so that we can add them to our list.

Now is the time to plan your celebrations to recognize library workers everywhere. To learn more about NLWD visit the ALA-APA NLWD page. To learn more about the ALA-APA and its programs, visit the ALA-APA web site.
