Resources for National Library Week and School Library Month

Find ways to celebrate and advocate for your libraries.

April is National School Library Month, and April 4-10 is National Library Week. It has been a difficult 13 months to be sure, but there is plenty to celebrate and promote when it comes to school and public libraries that have pivoted to meet the needs of students and patrons.

The American Library Association (ALA) and American Association of School Librarians (AASL) are ready with free resources to help librarians make the most of these days.

The AASL dedicated webpage has free graphics for bookmarks and posters, as well as videos to post from School Library Month Spokespeople, including Jason Reynolds and Jeff Kinney. There is also a collection of resources for building a school community.

For National Library Week, ALA offers five ways to celebrate, as well as free tools to help promote your library. There are also social media graphics in Spanish and English for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, some which include National Library Week Honorary Chair Natalie Portman.
