National Library Workers Day

On Tuesday, April 10, 2012, communities across the U.S. will recognize the contributions made by all library workers - including librarians, support staff and others who make library services possible - in celebration of National Library Workers Day.

Celebrated the Tuesday of National Library Week, held April 8-14, 2012, since 2003, National Library Workers Day NLWD is sponsored by the American Library Association-Allied Professional Association (ALA-APA), an organization that manages certification programs for library employees and advocates for better salaries and status for the library workforce.

The ALA-APA encourages those who will celebrate the day to nominate "star" library employees for public recognition on the National Library Workers Day Website.
