First sponsored in 1958, the American Library Association and libraries across the country observe National Library Week ("NLW") each April to celebrate the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and communities. 

The theme for this year's NLW, which is April 3 - 9, is Connect with Your Library. All types of libraries continue to go above and beyond to keep their communities connected by expanding services; embracing innovative programming, and collections; providing critical resources and expertise; and more.

In addition to the Town's public library, the Highland Park Independent School District's Armstrong Elementary, Boone Elementary, Bradfield Elementary, Hyer Elementary, University Park Elementary, McCulloch Intermediate and Highland Park Middle School, and the Highland Park High School libraries offer an environment conducive to reading and learning; creative expression; and investigation and research.

Libraries serve as their community's connection to lifelong learning and power imagination through creativity and discovery.
