September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month.  A time to remind parents and children that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

Snoopy is Honorary Chair for Library Card Sign-up Month 2015!

Snoopy, the world-famous beagle has been known as The Flying Ace, The Masked Marvel, Man’s Best Friend, and the Literary Ace, among other personas; this fall he makes his star turn when he comes to the big screen in The Peanuts Movie from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios.  In September, he’s especially proud to serve as Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month.

Peanuts is syndicated in over 2000 newspapers worldwide, and is translated into 21 languages. Celebrating 65 years of making us laugh, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the whole Peanuts Gang can be found in publications from Simon and Schuster, Abrams Comic Arts, Running Press, Andrews McMeel, and more.

A webinar, “How to Leverage Snoopy to Run a Library-Card Sign-Up Campaign for Your Library,” is scheduled for July. Check back for details and information about how to register.
