National Library Week is the week of April 13-19 and Tuesday April 15 is National Library Workers Day. The Friends of the Huntington Memorial Library will recognize the hard work, dedication, and expertise of library support staff and librarians this week and encourage library patrons to do the same.
Patrons may stop by the library and sign one of the “thank you” quotes that will be in a basket on the glass display case. Research indicates that the biggest motivator for most employees is receiving praise and knowing that they make a significant contribution to their organization.
National Library Week is the perfect opportunity to tell others how the library has changed your life and to thank the people who have helped. Libraries and the library staff have a powerful and positive impact on the lives of Americans on a daily basis.
