National Library Week: 4/23 – 4/29


National Library Week at Leeward CC Library 2023

National Library Week 2023: There’s More to the Story


April 23-29: Right to Read Display

Celebrate National Library Week with Leeward CC Library!

This year, National Library Week kicks off with Right to Read Day on Monday, April 24th. Libraries across the country saw record numbers of book challenges in 2022; most of these attempts to ban books occurred at school or public libraries. Librarians believe in an individual’s right to choose what they read, and we invite you to learn why the freedom to read is important from our American Library Association (ALA) President, Lessa Kanani‘opua Pelayo-Lozada.

Fun trivia: Lessa Kanani‘opua Pelayo-Lozada is the first ALA president of Hawaiian ancestry, and Leeward Library hosted her in November 2022 for the Hawai‘i Library Conference. 

We also encourage you to see There’s More to the Story at Leeward Library. In addition to books, you can borrow laptops, iPads, and charging devices. You can also talk with a librarian to get help with research, finding resources, or citing sources.
