HISTORY

National Siblings Day was founded by native New Yorker, Claudia Evart in 1995 to honor and celebrate siblings.  After losing her two siblings early in life in separate accidents, she knew how important siblings could be in our lives.

Claudia created the Siblings Day Foundation (SDF), a tax-exempt organization, whose goals included the establishment of National Siblings Day.  Claudia selected April 10 in honor of her late sister, Lisette’s birthday.  Visit the website for more National Siblings Day information at  http://www.siblingsday.org/.

NATIONAL ENCOURAGE A YOUNG WRITER DAY

Observed each year on April 10th is National Encourage a Young Writer Day.  Do you know a young person who has a vivid imagination, maybe someone who likes to tell stories and reads a lot of books?  These may be the signs of a great young writer.

National Encourage a Young Writer Day would be a good time to talk to them about their ideas and dreams.  Encourage them to pursue their goals and develop their writing skills.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Ways to support a young writer:

  • Give a journal.  A journal provides a place to for daily writing.  From short poems to inspired essays, this is a place young writers can feel free to stretch their wings unjudged.
  • Offer writing prompts.  These random bits of inspiration can come from the most unlikely sources but often generate unexpected results.  Prompts are available all over the web, as well as in books and apps.
  • Encourage them to read.  The more they read, their experience with writing and writers will expand.
  • Have young writers try multiple writing styles and different voices. Changing perspective will keep their writing fresh, allowing them an opportunity to find their personal style.
  • Create a young writers group.  It’s a good way see their story from the reader’s point of view and to receive feedback from peers.

Give a young writer some encouragement and use #EncourageAYoungWriterDay to post on social media.

NATIONAL LIBRARY WORKERS DAY

National Library Workers Day is observed annually on the Tuesday of National Library Week.  This day is designated to honor all library staff and the valuable contributions that they make.  This day is part of National Library Week sponsored by the American Library Association.

Libraries do so much more than house the books we can borrow nearly any time of the day or night. (Yes any time, day or night. Online reservation is highly popular.)

Today as always, library workers are masters of research. They can find the obscure quote (or partial misquote as the case may be) to help you correctly annotate your research paper.

Often, libraries are the keep of local history.  The names of pioneers and settlers names are often recorded in books and newspapers of the era.  Those books and papers are often still located at the local library.

Libraries are the champions of our youth. They foster creativity and are a wealth of diverse opportunities for growth.

Despite all libraries and their employees provide to their communities their budgets and salaries continue to shrink.  This day is designed to bring awareness to this continuing trend.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Use #NationalLibraryWorkersDay to post on social media.

HISTORY

National Library Workers Day was first celebrated in 2004.  It was started as a way to raise support for better benefits and salaries at a time when they had been stagnant for years. National Library Workers Day Continues to promote increased benefits and wages for the services provided by library workers every day.  For complete information regarding National Library Week and National Library Workers Day: http://www.ala.org/conferencesevents/celebrationweeks
