National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries across the country each April since 1958 to celebrate and promote our nation’s libraries and librarians. This year’s honorary chair is Gene Luen Yang, the 2016-2017 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. His book American Born Chinese was the first graphic novel to be a finalist for a National Book Award and the first to win the ALA’s Printz Award.
