Library Card Sign-up Month Public Service Announcement featuring Snoopy

 

 

 

 

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, 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.
