“Lives Change @ Your Library” is the theme of National Library Week. 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. This year’s celebration is April 13-19, and is a time to celebrate the contributions of the nation’s libraries and to promote library use and support. Pictured are Caroline Kennedy and her boys, Vijay and Namith, who hope to win a book from the library.
