You may know April 15 as Tax Day, but it’s also National Library Worker’s Day this year. Celebrate the contributions of your local librarians by spending the day -- not in line at the post office -- but by visiting one of our 60 branches and saying thanks to a fellow Brooklynite who makes a difference in the life of your community. Or visit the American Library Association’s website and nominate them for a gold star.
In addition to a day to submit taxes and celebrate librarians, April 15 is historically significant:
- In 1452, Leonardo da Vinci was born
- In 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier for baseball by debuting in the season opener for the Brooklyn Dodgers
- Annually in Hawaii they celebrate Father Damien Day
