National Library Week 2007

April 15-21st, 2007 is National Library Week!

National Library Week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries, librarians and library workers and to promote library use and support.

Did you know...?
  • More than 2 billion items were checked out from libraries in the U.S. last year, and librarians serve nearly 1.8 billion visitors annually
  • Research in 14 states has found that students with well-developed school libraries consistently score 10-18 percent higher on reading and other tests
  • Librarians answer almost 73 million reference questions each year– about twice the attendance at college football games.
