Celebrate National Library Week 2013!
Celebrate National Library Week, April 14-20, 2013, with Honorary Chair Caroline Kennedy.
Communities matter @ your library
Every day across the country, libraries open their doors to everyone: students, parents, seniors, teachers, writers, artists, job seekers, entrepreneurs, readers, gamers, movie lovers and travel buffs.
Head to your library during National Library Week to see what's new and take part in the celebration. Libraries across the country are participating.
Just in time for National Poetry Month and National Library Week: Check out Poetry Beats Studio, an interactive studio designed for students, educators and poetry lovers, where they can explore the rhythm and sound of spoken word. Poetry Beats Studio is in support of Caroline Kennedy's new book, Poems to Learn by Heart.
Please watch and share this public service announcement featuring National Library Week spokesperson, Caroline Kennedy, and "Austin and Ally" star Laura Marano.
