""National Library Week, April 4-10, 2021, is a time to highlight the essential role libraries, librarians and library workers play in transforming lives and strengthening New Mexico communities. This year’s National Library Week theme is “Welcome to your library,” which promotes the idea that the NMSU Library’s reach extends far beyond its four walls and campus boundary.

During these challenging times, the NMSU Library and its staff have worked hard to meet the needs of campus and community users. This National Library Week, Aggies can show their appreciation and support for the library by visiting the library’s website and social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram) and using the hashtag #NationalLibraryWeek to post their love for the library!

The kudos, thank yous, and shout-outs received by library staff acknowledge that Aggies very much appreciate their library. The unsolicited feedback highlights the excellent service and skills found in all library departments:
