Every year, National Library Week celebrates the transformative power of libraries to educate and build community. This year’s theme is “Find your place at the library,” and you can still find your place during the week with UNCG Libraries’ online collections and several exciting web-based events.

This year’s National Library Week will be April 19-25. To join in, email libmkt@uncg about your favorite comfort literature or post it on social media with the hashtag #ComfortLit4Spartans. Your selections may be featured in a future UNCG Libraries newsletter!
