3 Ways to Thank a Librarian

| April 13, 2016

Children today might not use the Dewey Decimal System as often as their parents did, but libraries are still an indispensible part of our schools and communities. Books, along with other library-based enrichment programs, not only teach our youth but can also transport them to different worlds and open up endless possibilities.

Did you know that (April 12) is National Library Workers Day? It’s the perfect time to thank your local librarian for everything they do. Keeping the library running – with valuable community programs, computer access, media organization and patron assistance – is no easy task!

Whether it’s a local city, county or school library, here are three things that you can do to express your appreciation and support:

  • Get involved. You can readily show your support by participating in the programs and events offered by your neighborhood library. Go one step further, and become a volunteer!
  • Show your gratitude. Write a thank you note or bake a gift to show your librarian that their hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. You can even nominate your favorite librarian for recognition on the National Library Workers Day website.
  • Make a donation. Whether it’s monetary, or gently used books and media, the library will appreciate it.

Please join us in thanking Arizona’s librarians for their incredible contributions today and every day!
