National Library Week will be celebrated around the United States during the week of April 12 -18, 2009, with the theme “Worlds Connect @ Your Library.” For school, public, academic, and special libraries, the week is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation’s libraries and librarians and to promote library use and support.

On the Walla Walla University campus, the week highlights not only the library, but those individuals on campus whose research, presentation, and publication help increase the world of knowledge.

For nearly 20 years the Petersen Memorial Library has collected information about the research activities of WWU faculty members throughout the past year. The information volunteered by members of the faculty is compiled into a bibliography which is distributed to the faculty members themselves, as well as kept in the E. L. Mabley Archives for the use of future scholars of Walla Walla University.

This year the library will provide this information electronically on the library website as well as in a print copy with an aim toward improving access to this information for faculty and administration.

National Library Week has been celebrated for over 50 years, usually during the second full week of April.

Tuesday, April 14th, is National Library Workers Day, so if you see one of your friendly library workers around campus, give them a smile and a wave!
