National Library Week is the American Library Association’s annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. 

This year, the iSchool will be celebrating National Library Week with our own schedule of events. The week-long celebration will feature presentations, workshops, and panel discussions from faculty and graduate students, as well as social and networking events, all centered around libraries and librarianship. 

We hope you will join us in celebrating libraries and librarianship with our events this week!
