Teen Titans are Honorary Chairs for Library Card Sign-up Month 2017!
This September, crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, will team up with the American Library Association (ALA) to promote the value of a library card. As honorary chairs, DC’s Teen Titans will remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
The Teen Titans are a young group of crimefighters who keep the world safe from the clutches of evil. From Starfire’s green energy beams and power of flight to Raven’s telekinetic and psychokinetic abilities, the Teen Titans have the power, courage and teamwork to rise to any challenges thrown their way.
Teen Titans posters and bookmarks are available for purchase through the ALA Store. Posters and bookmarks featuring other DC Super Heroes, including Supergirl, Batman, Super Sons, the Justice League, and Wonder Woman are available in the ALA Graphics summer catalog.

Library Superpower Promotion
Everyone loves superheroes, not just because they do great things, but also because they inspire us to be our best selves. And there's no better place to discover and develop your superpowers than at the library.
In honor of our 2017 Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chairs, DC's Teen Titans, we're asking everyone to share their library superpower.
What special talents, skills, and interests have you developed thanks to the library?
Tell us—or show us with a photo or short video—on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #LibrarySuperpower. Entries can also be posted directly to the I Love Libraries Facebook page.
One randomly selected winner will receive a VISA gift card worth $100.00 USD.
Promotion begins Friday, September 1 at noon CT and ends Thursday, September 22 at noon CT.
Librarians and the general public are encouraged to participate. Join in the fun and tell the world about your #LibrarySuperpower.
The only thing more powerful than a Teen Titan is a library card!
