September is Library Card Sign-up Month!
Get the school year off to the best possible start, sign up for a library card! With a library card you can discover new and exciting worlds! From borrowing audiobooks to streaming movies to taking free classes, there is so much you can access with a library card. Pursue your passions and dreams through your library’s resources and programs.
Libraries play a crucial role in the education and development of children, offering a variety of programs to spark creativity and stimulate an interest in reading and learning. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams, explore new passions and interests, and find their voice.
This year, Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, will serve as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month. Idina and Cara are excited to remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want us to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.
“It’s a little card that goes a loud way. Let your imagination sing at the library.” — Idina Menzel
