First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
April 3-9, 2022 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening communities. The theme for this year’s National Library Week is “Connect with Your Library,” which promotes the idea that libraries are places to get connected to technology including computers and other resources. Libraries also offer opportunities to connect with media and programs. Most importantly, libraries also connect communities to each other.
During the month of April The Farmington Libraries will be participating in the Passport to CT Libraries program based on the Wine Trail Passport Program in CT. Pick up a passport at either the Main Library or Barney Branch, get your passport stamped and explore other Connecticut libraries for a chance to win a raffle prize from the CT Library Association.
