Celebrate Libraries this April!

April is the perfect month to celebrate libraries of all types!

The entire month of April is School Library Month. School Library Month has been celebrated since 1985 by the American Association of School (AASL) Librarians, a division of the American Library Association (ALA). School Library Month is a fantastic time to celebrate the essential role that strong school libraries play in transforming learning. AASL's School Library Month website has many resources to promote School Library Month in your own community.
