Celebrate National Teacher’s Day

Countries around the world celebrate their teachers.  In the United States, Teacher Appreciation Week will begin on Monday, May 8 and end on Friday, May 12 with National Teacher’s Day falling on Tuesday, May 9th.

In 1953, the 81st Congress of the United States passed a resolution to designate a National Teacher Day in our country.  And since then teachers have received flowers, small gifts from students and the iconic apple from their students.  So, remember to personally thank teachers for making a positive impact on your life and the lives of children across the country.   Join Tacoma Public Library in celebrating our country’s teachers with a heartfelt thanks for all their hard work.  Then stop by the library to check out a few Children's Books about some of our favorite fictional teachers.
