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, and technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available.
September is also fine free month for any items (aside from books that are already fine-free) that gain overdue fees. Come in today! With a library card you can discover new and exciting worlds! From borrowing audiobooks to streaming movies to taking virtual Do It Yourself classes, there is so much you can access with a library card. Pursue your passions and dreams through our library’s resources and programs.
