Canva Templates for Librarians

April is School Library Month and April 7-13 is National Library Week! Celebrate with Canva Templates for the library.

It’s time to break out the confetti and strike up the band because it’s National Library Week, April 7-13! Let’s give a round of applause to those magical havens where every shelf holds adventures and where imagination knows no bounds: school libraries. But libraries wouldn’t be the community hubs they are if it weren’t for librarians! Let’s celebrate with a curated list of Canva templates specifically for librarians. But first, let’s take a look at some important dates.

Important Library Dates

School Library Month kicks off every April, thanks to the American Association of School Librarians (AASL). They’re the ones who decided to shine a spotlight on our fantastic school librarians and libraries all across the country in 1985. The idea? Well, it’s all about getting everyone in the school and community pumped to understand how libraries are essential to learning and education.

  • School Library Month: April
  • School Librarian Day: April 4
  • National Library Week: April 7-13 (second full week in April)
  • Right to Read Day: April 8
  • National Library Workers Day: April 9
  • National Library Outreach Day: April 10
  • Take Action for Libraries Day: April 11
