News & Events

The week of April 8th is a special week for libraries across the United States:  National Library Week.  First celebrated in 1958, National Library Week is celebrated to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians, and library workers play in American history. Libraries connect our communities in a variety of ways by serving as a 3rd space outside of home and work to allow for learning, personal growth, relaxation, and solace, and they play a critical role in our democracy by providing access to information.  The theme for National Library Week 2024 is “Ready, Set, Library!”    

To celebrate National Library Week, connect with the Del Mar College Libraries on the Heritage, Windward, and Oso Creek campuses  through a number of events, including displays, giveaways, and opportunities to take action on behalf of libraries. See flyer.
