Four ways to celebrate National Library Workers Day!

Tomorrow, Tuesday April 16th, 2013, is National Library Workers Day!  What is that, you ask?  It's been happening every April since 2003, and the ALA website states: it is "a day for library staff, users, administrators and Friends groups to recognize the valuable contributions made by all library workers."

Over at ALA website for NLWD, you can:
  1. Find a lovely poster, which conveniently fits on an 8.5"x11" piece of paper
  2. Be inspired by a ton of ideas for celebrations
  3. Submit a star (Oregon is sadly lacking in this department, dear readers!)
  4. Talk about pay equity

So, fellow Oregonian Support Staffers, do you celebration National Library Workers Day? If so, what do you do to observe this spectacular day?

And don't forget to shoot a star at a fellow support staffer!


  1. Our Friends of the Library organization gives us a gift of money (thank you!) to spend however we want on celebrations, which in my branch, means FOOD. :)

  2. Our library is having an all-staff potluck for the opportunity to come together for lunch and celebrate our good work for our patrons.
