2016 Library Card Sign-up Month Press Kit
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, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Snoopy, the world-famous beagle from Peanuts, is returning to be this year's Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month.
