National Library Week: Home

National Library Week 2024: Ready Set Library!

What is National Library Week?

During the month of April, libraries across the nation will highlight the roles of libraries, librarians, and staff and what part they play in communities. For most students at Leeward Community College, the library is the first place they go when they are in need of answers. Come by and let us show you what we have to offer!

Libraries Believe in the Freedom to Read

Freedom to Read Statement

Library workers hold the line for their communities

Quote from ALA President

'Resistance Is Its Own Reward': Library Workers Hold the Line for their Communities by the President of the American Library Association, Lessa Kanani'opua Pelayo-Lozada, explains ways librarians are supporting the freedom to read and promoting equity in libraries. In the article, Pelayo-Lozada mentions our very own librarian Annemarie Paikai, who is working with Shavonn Matsuda to create controlled vocabularies and authority records that represent indigenous worldviews.
