Free webinar recording: “Celebrating National Friends of Libraries Week”

United for Libraries has made available a free webcast recording on “Celebrating National Friends of Libraries Week: Promoting Your Group and Library.” Plan now for the 12th annual National Friends of Libraries Week, Oct. 15-21, 2017. This webinar will offer ideas on how to celebrate the week within your group, library, and community. Hear about the 2016 National Friends of Libraries Week Award winners, the Holdrege (NE) Area Friends of the Library and the Friends of the Glendale (Ariz.) Public Library. And learn about the ALA Store’s new customizable “Friend Your Library” products designed specifically for Friends. View the webcast recording and learn more on the National Friends of Libraries Week website. United for Libraries Friends group members are also eligible to apply for National Friends of Libraries Week Awards. All Nebraska public libraries are members of United for Libraries through the statewide membership purchased by the Nebraska Library Commission. Two groups will be awarded $250 each in honor of their celebrations during the week. For information about the award and to submit an application for your group, visit the Awards website.

    AND for more ideas about celebrating National Friends of Libraries Week, join us at the Nebraska Library Association/ Nebraska School Librarians Association statewide library conference October 12-13 in Kearney. We’ll help you get ready for National Friends of Libraries Week by showing you how to make “Friend Your Library” buttons and luggage tags in our Library Innovation Studios: Transforming Rural Communities project makerspace exhibit. See for more information about Friends of Libraries Week and see for PR materials and to purchase marketing materials in quantity from United for Libraries.
    Remember: the Nebraska Library Commission funds a statewide membership to United for Libraries for Nebraska libraries. You can go to, log in with username: nebraska5 and password: cornhusker to download bookmark and poster files and print them yourself. Looking forward to seeing lots of Nebraska Librarians in Kearney!
