National Library Week 2013: Communities Matter @ Your Library
The New Mexico State University Library joins libraries nationwide in celebrating National Library Week, April 14 through 20. The week’s theme for 2013 is “Communities matter @ your library.” National Library Week is an annual celebration of the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians. All types of libraries – school, public, academic and special – participate.
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.
American Library Association officials said that National Library Week is a time to highlight the value of libraries, librarians and library workers. Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, campuses or schools, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study. Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.
The NMSU Library is asking you to choose National Library Week as the occasion to make your next gift to the Library. Libraries play important and diverse roles in the lives of students, faculty and the broader community. Today the NMSU Library is more relevant than ever to the needs of our users. Your contributions truly help the Library provide world-class resources for students
