National Library Workers Day

The week of April 12 is National Library Week, a good opportunity to educate communities about the importance of libraries and the challenges they’re facing to provide information resources to the reading public.

Library workers today, many represented by AFSCME, are fighting to protect libraries even as resources are being cut in cities and states across the country.

AFSCME members are distributing these bookmarks in libraries across the country.

“On National Library Workers Day, we extend a special thanks to our sisters and brothers who are employed in public libraries for the valuable services they provide,” said Council 4 Executive Director Sal Luciano. “And during National Library Week, we encourage everyone to visit your local library and thank the employees who make your local library happen.”
