One of the most overdue library books in the world was returned after 122 years. Librarians used to have to learn a specific style of handwriting called “Library hand”. The oldest library in the world dates from the seventh century BC.
National Library Week is an annual celebration highlighting the valuable role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening our communities. In the mid-1950s, research showed that Americans were spending less on books and more on radios, televisions and musical instruments.
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.
