October is Michigan Library Appreciation Month

Get ready to celebrate Michigan Library Appreciation Month! This October we are celebrating Michigan libraries and library staff and highlighting all the ways libraries serve their communities.

Join us in participating in Michigan Library Appreciation Month and help us highlight just how much of an impact our libraries have made in the lives of Michiganders.

We will offer several ways libraries, library staff and patrons can get involved. This month we ask that you submit the Michigan Library Appreciation Month proclamation to your local elected officials to give them time to proclaim their support! Issuing a proclamation is simple to do. Identify a council member, mayor, superintendent, dean, or supervisor to sponsor the proclamation and have them present it at a commission meeting or important leadership function.

Join the celebration to highlight Michigan libraries, librarians, and library workers all October long!


Every October, we celebrate and highlight our love of libraries during Michigan Library Appreciation Month on social media. We usually share quotes from authors, celebrities, and other public figures, but this October we want to feature your words! All October, Michigan librarians’ and library workers' quotes will be featured in shareable social media graphics that will include their name and library and quotable wisdom.

Help us celebrate all the good library professionals do in our communities! Follow us on social media, share our posts and give a shout-out to your library staff, or your neighboring libraries. Highlight your library and all that it contains – the building, the collection, the staff, and the fun. Remember to tag your posts #LOVEMILIBRARIES or #MILIBRARYMONTH so we can find and share your posts!
