This week, IU Libraries joins libraries in schools, campuses and communities nationwide in celebrating the dynamic changes that are happening in today’s libraries. April 10-16 is National Library Week, a time to highlight the changing role of libraries, librarians and library workers. 

More than ever, libraries today are about what they do, for and with their patrons. Libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging centers where people collaborate using new technologies, learn how to use a 3D printer or connect with colleagues. Our libraries offer access to a vast and changing variety of print, film, audio and digital resources that can be accessed in person, online or by delivery request.

As one of America's top 15 public university libraries, IU Libraries host millions of visits each year.  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.
