NLWD is a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers. Your local library workers dedicate themselves to serving the community everyday. They educate, captivate and connect you with the informational and recreational resources you need. They work evenings and weekends to ensure the library is open when you need it. They check in, check out, and renew thousands of items each day. They answer your questions in person, by phone, by email, by instant message, and even by text message! They help you find a tax form, with the copier and with the fax machine. They read stories to your children, help you find a good book, and teach you to use a computer. They maintain web pages with links to get you to the information you need fast. They do all of this to serve you, their community.
You can thank your favorite library worker here by adding them to the "Galaxy of Stars" at the American Library Association's National Library Workers Day website. Show them how much you appreciate everything they do.
