Ways to Celebrate National Library Week

1. Visit your library online – https://dexter.lib.mi.us/digital-collections

While many libraries are temporarily closed due the current public health crisis, it’s a great time to explore the many digital resources they provide. Most libraries offer access to audiobooks, e-books, music and movies. Some are even finding ways to offer programs online, such as virtual storytimes, book clubs, and crafting sessions.

2. Try out our Digital Escape Room

Our “Find the Library at Your Place” Digital Adventure can be found here:

3. Say #ThankYouLibraries on social media

What's your favorite online library service? (pictured: woman wearing headphones in window working at computer)

While many libraries are temporarily closed due the current public health crisis, it’s a great time to explore the many digital resources they provide. Most libraries offer access to audiobooks, e-books, music and movies. Some are even finding ways to offer programs online, such as virtual storytimes, book clubs, and crafting sessions.

Celebrate National Library Week 2020 by sharing what you love about the virtual services available at your library. Post to Instagram, Twitter, or on the I Love Libraries Facebook page,  about an e-book, audiobook, virtual storytime or bookclub, or how your library has made a difference while you’ve been social distancing at home. Use the hashtag #ThankYouLibraries and tag your library.  We’ll gather all the entries, and one randomly selected winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card.  The promotion starts Sunday, April 19 at noon CT and ends on Saturday, April 25 at noon CT.  Official rules coming soon.

If you love your library, say it loud and proud: vocal community support helps libraries secure much-needed funding and reminds hardworking library staff that their efforts are appreciated. Participating in #ThankYouLibraries is a quick, easy way to help your library thrive!

4. Follow your library, ALA, and I Love Libraries on social media

Be sure to follow your library on social media so you don’t miss out on all they have to offer, including the most reliable information about keeping your family safe during the uncertain times.

Follow the American Library Association and I Love Libraries on social media and join us on social media by using the hashtags #NationalLibraryWeek and #LibrariesTransform.
