The National Library Week Program, now embarking upon its thirteenth year of activity to promote reading and library development, has announced its calendar of annual observances for 1970 and 1971. The dates designated, for what has been called “an annual festival in behalf of the civilized mind,” are April 12- 18, 1970 and April 18-24, 1971.

The nationwide year-round campaign is sponsored by the National Book Committee, Inc., an independent nonprofit membership group of prominent citizens, in cooperation with the American Library Association. The special “Week” itself, traditionally held in the Spring, has a dual related purpose. It is the occasion for attracting massive public attention to the benefits of lifetime habits of reading and library-use; and it provides renewed focus for the year’s program goals and allied activities, developed and carried out by local, state and national committees drawn from all facets of community and library leadership. Overall plans and the theme for the 1970 Program will be announced in the Fall. Queries concerning the forthcoming campaign and supportive materials should be sent to NLW Program headquarters, One Park Avenue, New York City 10016.
