What is National Library Week?

The concept is simple: celebrate libraries and the services they provide.

In the mid-1950, research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios, television, and musical instruments. Concerned that Americans were reading less, the American Library Association (ALA) and the American Book Publishers formed a nonprofit citizens’ organization called the national Book Committee in 1954. The committee’s goals ranged from “encouraging people to read in their increasing leisure time” to “improving incomes and health” and “developing strong and happy family life.”

In 1957, the committee developed a plan for National Library Week based on the idea that once people were motivated to read, they would support and use libraries. The first National Library Week was observed in 1958 with the theme “Wake Up and Read”, and we hope to recreate the spirit of that event with this year’s Pancakes with Pete. Join us in celebration of great books and Roseville’s great libraries.
