National Library Week

This week, the South Fayette Township Library will join libraries of all types across the nation in celebrating the many ways libraries build strong communities by providing critical resources, programs and expertise. 

April 7-13, 2019 is National Library Week, an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. Libraries are at the heart of their cities, towns, schools and campuses. They have public spaces where people of all backgrounds can come together and connect.

Libraries are cornerstones of democracy, promoting the free exchange of information and ideas for all. They also foster civic engagement by keeping people in formed and aware of community events and issues.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
