September is here. Can you believe it? That means school is back in session and families are stocking up on school supplies. Do you have your most important school supply of all? Do you have your library card?
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. If you or your family members do not yet have a library card this is the time to get one. Already have a card? That’s GREAT! Take this time to double check that your library card is in good shape. If it is damaged, of if it is lost, come into the library and we will get you a replacement card. Is all of your contact information correct and up to date? Take a moment to double check with us.
The American Library Association has some fun ways to participate this month. Use the Library Card Sign-Up word balloons (like the one below) to tell everyone why your library card is important to you. Parents, you may share through your Facebook or Twitter accounts with the hashtag #LibraryCardSignUp for a chance to win cool prizes including a year’s subscription to Marvel Unlimited. For more information visit atyourlibrary.org
I challenge everyone to encourage one person: a family member, a friend or a teacher, to get a library card this month. Remember, your library card is a valuable tool, a key to unlock unlimited knowledge. See you at the library!
