Wading to the Bookmobile

In 1957 the National Book Committee, a joint committee of the American Library Association and the American Book Publishers Council, recommended the establishment of a National Library Week.  The first National Library Week was observed May 16-22, 1958 with the theme “Wake Up and Read”. It has continued every year since 1958.  In 1974, the American Library Association became the sole sponsor of the event. The 50th anniversary of National Library Week was celebrated in 2008.  Click on this link to go to the American Library Association’s National Library Week site.  For 100 Terrific Websites to Celebrate National Library Week click here.
