National Library Week 2017

National Library Week is the week of April 9th–15th, but the UNT Libraries have so much to offer our community, we have to make it a two-week celebration starting April 3rd!

The theme this year is “Libraries Transform,” the campaign is designed to increase public awareness of the value, impact, and services provided by libraries and library professionals…showcasing the transformative nature of today’s libraries and elevating the critical role libraries play in the digital age.”

During our National Library Week celebrations and in the week leading up to them, you will see lawn signs on campus with “Libraries Transform Because…” If you’d like to share with us how libraries have made an impact in your lives, please let us know on social media using #UNT #LibrariesTransform, or email us.
