This September marks the 30th anniversary of Library Card Sign-up Month—a time when the American Library Association (ALA) joins public libraries nationwide to highlight the value of a library card. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. Libraries work to remind parents and youth that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Throughout the school year, public librarians and library staff will assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. From free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help, technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost effective back to school supplies available.
Durning Library Card Sign-up Month crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, are teaming up with the ALA to encourage k-12 students to sign-up for a free library card.
The American Library Association (ALA) is making available free downloadable Teen Titans artwork and audio Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to help promote the value of a library card. Broadcast quality MP3 and WAV :10, :15, :20 and :30-second PSAs are now available for download.
