National Library Week will be observed April 8-14, 2018 with the theme, "Libraries Lead." First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.
National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 199. Over the years, has become the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, libraries, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry's vital place in our culture.
