A Philatelic Tribute to National Library Week

Today marks the beginning of National Library Week, April 13-19th. It is also the 50th Anniversary of National Library Week.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.

To celebrate and mark the occasion, Larry T. Nix has put together a philatelic tribute to National Library Week on his website - The Library History Buff.

Shown above, a 1963 meter slogan promoting National Library Week.
