National Library Week occurs annually during the first week of April. The 2021 theme is "Welcome to Your Library". Libraries have increasingly found more and more ways to open their doors for us to utilize their services, beyond their physical structures. Through the use of technology, a visit to your local library is only a few keystrokes away. The resources they make available to our communities are invaluable and help to open our minds and our hearts to the world around us that we might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage.
The American Library Association has identified several ways to celebrate National Library Week, and we have added one item ourselves:
- Visit your library [online]
- Sit in on A National Library Week conversation with Dan Rather
- Participate in the #MyLibraryIs promotion on social media
- Follow your library, ALA and I Love Libraries on social media
- Find a puzzle that reflects a love of libraries and books (this is our favorite, and we have what you need atwww.puzzlicious.com!)
Our collection of jigsaw puzzles and puzzle books are a great way to incorporate your love of books and libraries with your love of puzzling. Like libraries, puzzles have a way of transporting us to different worlds, places, and times. They allow us to escape and create.
There is no time like the present to celebrate national library week and add a library-celebrating jigsaw puzzle or puzzle book to your collection. It's also a great time to let your favorite librarians (aka media specialists) know how much you appreciate them!
Just a few of our notable favorites for the occasion are Michael Storring's New York Public Library 1000 Piece Puzzle, Phat Dog Vintage Library 1000 Piece Foil-Stamped Puzzle, and Jane Austen's Book Club 1000 Piece Round Puzzle.
