Library Lovers' Day will be held again in 2018, as always on 14 February. This year we are looking at the love that we all hold for libraries and how they help to shape our national identity. Therefore, we have sought love letters from prominent Australian authors on how they hold libraries in a special place in their hearts.
Using these love letters, we will be releasing — free of charge — posters that you will be able to print out and put up for Library Lovers’ Day. We're aiming to get as many authors involved in this campaign as possible and the Australian Publishing Association have come onboard to help, so you will have plenty of options to choose from!
Library Lovers' Day will be launched at the Parliamentary Friends of Australian Books and Writers event at Parliament House on 13 February 2018. As always, ALIA will be asking Members to share their library love stories on Twitter and Facebook, using the hashtag #libraryloversday.
