Profile America


Library Week

Profile America — Thursday, April 17th. April is a significant month for the American printed word. In 1800, the Library of Congress was founded, and earlier this week, in 1828, Noah Webster published the first dictionary of American English. This is also the fifth day of National Library Week, celebrating libraries, those who staff them and the billions of materials they circulate. While computers and electronic media are of increasing importance in the services libraries offer, books remain at the core of their collections, with the Library of Congress alone holding more than 35 million. It's estimated there are over 120,000 libraries across the U.S., from the familiar public libraries to those in schools, academies and governments. State and local libraries employ nearly 89,000 people full time and over 95,000 part-timers.
