Today, April 10th, is National Library Workers Day (NLWD). Established by the American Library Association’s Allied Professional Association’s (ALA-APA), NLWD was designed as an opportunity to recognize all library workers, including librarians, support staff and others who make library service possible every day.
Do you know any library workers who should be recognized for the great work they do, their positive outlook, or the wonderful way they assist patrons? Consider submitting their names to the ALA-APA Galaxy of Stars as part of National Library Workers Day celebration. It’s not too late to let someone know that you appreciate them and the work they do.
The National Library Workers Day webpage encourages friends, patrons, employers and co-workers to “Submit a Star” by providing a brief testimonial about a favorite library employee. Each testimonial (listing first names, library type and city/state location only) will be posted on the NLWD’s Galaxy of Stars page. You may nominate as many library workers as you like.
