September is Library Card Sign-up Month—a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind the masses that a library card is the key to limitless opportunities. 

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. It is a time when the ALA and libraries across the country join together to remind parents and children that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning. 

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