Neil Gaiman announced as Honorary National Library Week Chair

By on

If you follow Neil Gaiman on Twitter you know it’s no secret how he feels about libraries and librarians. 

It is with that admiration in mind, that the American Library Association’s (ALA) Campaign for America’s Libraries is thrilled to announce the 2009 Newbery Medal winning author of “The Graveyard Book” as the Honorary Chair of National Library Week 2010.

Attendees of the Office for Intellectual Freedom’s “My these novels certainly are graphic” panel at the ALA Annual Conference might have heard the “unofficial” news this summer.

As Honorary Chair Gaiman will appear in both print and radio public service announcements (PSA), a podcast and will participate in a National Library Week event.

ALA will place the print PSA in national publications throughout the spring, so be sure to check out your favorite magazines.

National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the ALA and libraries across the country each April. It is a time to celebrate the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians and to promote library use.
