Library Card Sign-up Month is a celebration held each September during which librarians across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.
A library card is a key resource in achieving academic success, and the library is the perfect place to spend quality family time together. Connect with your kids @ your library Family Activity Guide (PDF) and blog provide parents with ideas of how they can spend quality family time with their children and teens at home, in the community and at the library.
This September visit your local library with your children and teens to and sign up for a library card! If you've already signed up for a library card and it's been misplaced, bring some ID and we'll replace it this month for FREE! And if you need another reason to visit the library, check out this list of 60 ways to use your library card.
