What is National Library Workers Day?

NLWD is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.

On January 25, 2003, a resolution was proposed:

That in order to recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of library support staff and librarians that the Tuesday of National Library Week be designated National Library Workers Day; and, that on that day, interested library workers, library groups, and libraries should advocate for better compensation for all library workers and, if the day coincides with National Pay Equity Day, these individuals, groups, and libraries should recognize both days together.
