Central Piedmont Library Exhibits: Current Exhibit - National Library Week 2020

About National Library Week

National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities.

The theme for National Library Week 2020, "Find your place at the library," was chosen some time ago, before any of us could imagine the emergence of a global pandemic that would force most libraries to temporarily close their physical spaces.  But you can still find your place at the library because libraries are open for business online, providing the virtual services and digital content their communities need more than ever. You can access ebooks, movies, music, video games, virtual storytimes and activities, and so much more — all from the comfort of your home.

Read more about the 60-year history of National Library Week at American Libraries magazine, and check out the list of past National Library Week themes.

Library Staff are Shining Stars in a Galaxy of Knowledge

Nominate a Central Piedmont Library image yellow star

National Library Workers Day (NLWD) is a time to recognize library professionals for their expertise and leadership skills in transforming lives and communities through education and lifelong learning. The day also reminds us that library workers serve as community compasses that lead users to endless opportunities for engagement, enrichment and development. 

While we cannot have in-person celebrations, we can still highlight the critical role library workers play in keeping our libraries running. How about taking our celebrations online? Let’s take this time to flood social media (using the hashtag #NLWD20) with words of gratitude for all library workers.
