Celebrate Librarians and Books
Hip Hip Hooray for Librarians
National Library Week (April 11-17, 2010 -"Communities thrive @ your library"), School Library Media Month (April), and Children’s Book Week (May 10-16, 2010) is a great time to celebrate books and reading. Libraries haven’t always been available in the United States, and sometimes even if libraries were available all citizens did not have access to them. But librarians have always made a difference. These books are each a tribute to the power of librarians and literacy, and to words and reading.
This is the first paragraph of an article, Hip Hip Hooray for Librarians, about efforts in the United States and the World to get books into the hands of readers. Includes booklists and connects to a second list "Librarians: Books to Children."
