MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
April 4-10, 2021, as Library Week in the State of
New York

WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to pay tribute to
those community based organizations which unselfishly devote their
energy, resources and thoughtful care on behalf of improving the quality
and character of life in that community; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 4-10, 2021, as
Library Week in the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National Library Week; and

WHEREAS, National Library Week is a time to highlight the value of
libraries, librarians, and library workers through this year's theme
"Welcome to your Library"; and

WHEREAS, First celebrated in 1958, National Library Week marks its
63rd Anniversary in 2021, as a national observance sponsored by the
American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each
April; and

WHEREAS, Libraries are a treasured part of American culture, and a
valuable resource on a wide variety of popular topics, inspiring people
to read, helping to improve incomes and health, and encouraging the
development of strong, happy lives; and

WHEREAS, Not only places to borrow books, libraries also serve as
creative and engaging community centers where people can collaborate and
use new technologies to further their skills and passions; and

WHEREAS, Libraries serve as a resource for students, small business
owners, English-language learners and many others who depend on all of
the resources our libraries have to offer; and

WHEREAS, The citizens of the State of New York stand firmly
committed to promoting reading as the catalyst for our students' future
academic success, their preparation for America's jobs of the future,
and their ability to compete in a global economy; and

WHEREAS, Our nation's libraries may take just pride in its
purposeful growth, as it looks forward to continuing to serve the
educational, cultural and intellectual needs of its communities; now,
therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim April 4-10, 2021, as
Library Week in the State of New York; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
