National Library Week is April 7-13

NLW2024Ready, set, library! National Library Week is April 7–13, 2024, and the Atlantic City Free Public Library encourages everyone in the community to visit the library to take part in the festivities and explore all the library has to offer.

Libraries give us a green light to experience something truly special: a place to connect with others, learn new skills, and pursue our passions through book clubs, storytimes, movie nights, crafting classes, lectures, and more. The Atlantic City Free Public Library offers a wide array of programs, classes and resources for people of all ages.

And libraries play a pivotal role in economic development by providing resources and support for job seekers, entrepreneurs and small businesses.

During National Library Week, come into the Main Library during normal hours: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m., and Thursday from 9:30 a.m.-8 p.m. to fill out a short survey so you can be entered in a contest for a chance to win a prize basket. Also, we're having a big book sale that week! All books in our book sale will be FREE that week. Bring a bag to carry home the books you want. If you don't have a bag, the library is selling library bags for $1.

No matter where you find yourself in life’s journey — preparing for a new career, launching a business, raising a family or settling into retirement — the Atlantic City Free Public Library offers the resources and support you need and an inclusive and supportive community where you’ll feel welcome.

So, get ready to explore, become inspired, and connect with others this National Library Week. The Atlantic City Free Public Library is there for you, all the way to the finish line.

First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association and libraries of all types across the country each April.
