September is Library Card Sign-up Month!
Posted August 31, 2023.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
Throughout the school year, public librarians and library staff will assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. From free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help, and technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available.
