Every year the librarians and staff at the North Bergen Public Library look forward to celebrating National Library Week! This year National Library Week will take place from April 4th to 10th and the theme for National Library Week is “Welcome to Your Library”. This theme promotes the idea that libraries extend far beyond the four walls of a building – and that everyone is welcome to use their services. Join us in celebrating libraries and all the ways they contribute to our communities and our world. 

Today, the North Bergen Public Library is celebrating with a themed booklist! All of the books featured on this list are books about libraries, books, and reading. For these titles and many more, be sure to check out the North Bergen Public Library’s catalog and reserve a copy!
