April 4-10 is National Library Week

April 4 – 10, 2021 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Welcome to your library,” which promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building and that everyone is welcome to use these services. Whether people visit virtually or in person, libraries are accessible and inclusive places that foster a sense of belonging and community through learning, discovery, and exploration.

During these challenging times, Prince William Public Libraries have joined libraries of all types in going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding resources and continuing to meet the needs of patrons. Libraries across the country are making a difference in people’s lives by providing electronic learning resources like online homework help and Wi-Fi access for students and workers who may lack internet access at home. Prince William Public Libraries are supporting the community with virtual services such as loaning mobile Wi-Fi hotspots to provide home internet access, offering free enrollment for qualified adult students in Career Online High School, an online high school diploma and career certification program, and virtual programs for all ages.

This National Library Week, the public can show appreciation and support for libraries by visiting and exploring pwcgov.org/library, following PWPL on social media and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek to share their own experiences how PWPL has made a difference in their lives.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
