A Special Week, a Special Host, and a Golden Anniversary

by birdie

Guess what's fifty years old...but not yet over the hill? National Library Week, that's next week, April 13-19. It was first celebrated in 1958.

This year’s National Library Week honorary chair is the beloved entertainer and author Julie Andrews, known for her roles in such classic movies as “The Sound of Music” and “Mary Poppins.” In her role as chair, Andrews has produced a series of television and radio Public Service Announcements for National Library Week, which are available at this website.

More on plans and festivities from: The Times and Democrat (SC), Hill Country Times (TX), Herald Times Reporter (WI), Tampa (FL) Tribune, Portsmouth (NH) Herald News, Greeley (CO) Tribune, and, for additional information, go to ALA's Library Week page.
