April 19-25, 2020:  Find the Library at Your Place

2020national library week7First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support. All types of libraries - school, public, academic and special - participate.

This year's theme is Find the Library at Your Place.  Whether it's checking out an eBook to cozy up with, watching story time on Facebook, flipping through a digital magazine, watching staff show you how to do a craft via video, getting fun ideas from the Library's social media accounts, finding full-text articles for research, or streaming a movie, we encourage you to find the Library at your place, and take advantage of all we have to offer.

Celebrate the Library this week with:

  • Have some fun, show your your love for books, and Find Your Face at the Library with our #BookFace contest.

#BookFace Contest

What better way to show you've found your place at the Library than to show your face at the Library!  #BookFaceFriday is a popular social media trend among librarians and book lovers, and we thought it would be a fun way to celebrate National Library Week.

How does it work?  Find a fun book cover with a person in the design, then find a way to extend the book cover with your face and/or body. Snap a photo and post it to social media using the tag #BookFaceFriday. 

Post during National Library Week and use the hastag #epplbookface, & you'll have a chance to win a prize.

Take a look at the examples below, or search #BookFaceFriday on social media or Google to find examples.
