National Library WeekThe theme for National Library Week 2024, “Ready, Set, Library!” promotes the idea that in our always-online world, libraries give us a green light to something truly special: a place to connect with others, learn new skills, and focus on what matters most. 

No matter where you find yourself on the roadmap through life’s journey—preparing for a new career, launching a business, or raising a family—your library provides an inclusive and supportive community where everyone belongs.

Get ready to explore, become inspired, and connect with your library this National Library Week. Libraries are there for you, all the way to the finish line. -American Library Association

In honor of National Library Week, the Roseville Public Library is hosting our second bookmark design contest! This is an opportunity for our community to share their stories.

Pick up a bookmark template from any of our three locations starting March 1, 2024. Get creative and design your own original bookmark using this year’s theme: “Read, Set, Library!”. You may interpret this however you wish. Bookmarks will be judged in age group categories (5-8, 9-12, Teen, and Adult). Winning bookmarks in each category will be mass produced and provided to library patrons while supplies last.
