This week marks the 60th anniversary of National Library Week. Sponsored by the American Library Association, the week of April 8-14, 2018 will be a celebration of all things libraries! Libraries not only house some of our most important cultural treasures, they serve as community outreach and resource centers. This year's theme is "Libraries Lead," with American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Misty Copeland serving as the 2018 National Library Week Honorary Chair.
