National Library Week
National Library Week 2021: Welcome to Your Library
This year's theme for National Library Week (April 4-10, 2021), “Welcome to Your Library,” promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. During the pandemic Santa Cruz Public Libraries continue to provide services to the public. Although these services may look different than they were pre-pandemic, libraries continue to offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.
Celebrations during National Library Week
- Monday, April 5: State of America's Libraries Report released, including Top Ten Frequently Challenged Books of 2020.
- Tuesday, April 6: National Library Workers Day, a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers.
- Wednesday, April 7: National Library Outreach Day, a day to celebrate library outreach and the dedicated library professionals who are meeting their patrons where they are.
