We’re Searching for Some Stars

Do you know any library workers who should be recognized for the great work they do, their positive outlook or the wonderful way they assist patrons? If so, consider submitting their names to the ALA-APA Galaxy of Stars as part of the National Library Workers Day (NLWD) celebration. It’s the perfect opportunity to let someone know that you appreciate them and the work they do.

National Library Workers Day was designed as a day to recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of all library workers. This year, NLWD is on Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  

We encourage anyone who has seen a library worker doing fantastic things on the job to “Submit a Star” by providing a brief testimonial about a favorite library employee. Each testimonial (listing first names, library type and city/state location only) will be posted on the NLWD’s Galaxy of Stars page. You may nominate as many library workers as you like.

Libraries, organizations, and communities are encouraged to host celebrations to honor great workers, teams and departments. Visit the NLWD page for celebration ideas or to get the Tool Kit with downloadable templates. Now is an excellent time to start planning your activities and events to recognize library workers who make library service possible every day.
