The National Library Week Distinguished Author Lecture was created in 2019 as part of the merger of the Friends of APL and APL Foundation. This year's event will be virtual and will not include an author reception.
National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. National Library Week takes place from April 4 to 10. This year's National Library Week theme -- “Welcome to Your Library” -- promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. During the pandemic libraries have been going above and beyond to adapt to our changing world by expanding their resources and continuing to meet the needs of their users. Whether people visit in person or virtually, libraries offer opportunities for everyone to explore new worlds and become their best selves through access to technology, multimedia content, and educational programs.
