Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month — a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

The observance was launched in 1987 to meet the challenge of then Secretary of Education William J. Bennett who said: "Let's have a national campaign...every child should obtain a library card - and use it."  Since then, thousands of public and school libraries join each fall in a national effort to ensure every child does just that.

This year's Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month is Snoopy, the world-famous beagle from Peanuts.
