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. Libraries and librarians are change agents within their communities – transforming lives through innovative educational resources and forward-thinking programming. Libraries work to close the digital divide and level the playing field by providing free access to information and technologies that many in their communities do not have. Libraries promote democracy by providing service to all regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity or socio-economic status.
