CHICAGO – As honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-up Month, crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, are appearing in print and digital Public Service Announcements (PSAs) to help promote the value of a library card. DC is also providing Teen Titans artwork for customizable library cards, billboards and social media graphics.
The PSAs and artwork featuring the Teen Titans are free and can be downloaded at the Library Card Sign-up Month webpage. The webpage also includes media tools to help remind the public of all the resources available with a library card. Tools include a sample press release, proclamation and radio PSA scripts. The PSAs, artwork and tools are available in both English and Spanish.
Teen Titans posters and bookmarks are available for purchase through the ALA Store at alastore.ala.org. Posters and bookmarks starring other DC Super Heroes, including Supergirl, Batman, Super Sons, the Justice League and Wonder Woman can also be purchased.
Library Card Sign-up Month is a time to bring attention to the supportive role libraries and librarians play in transforming lives and communities through education. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries join together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
The Teen Titans are a young group of crimefighters who keep the world safe from the clutches of evil. From Starfire’s green energy beams and power of flight to Raven’s telekinetic and psychokinetic abilities, the Teen Titans have the power, courage and teamwork to rise to any challenges thrown their way.
The American Library Association is the oldest and largest library association in the world, with more than 57,000 members in academic, public, school, government, and special libraries. The mission of the American Library Association is to provide leadership for the development, promotion and improvement of library and information services and the profession of librarianship in order to enhance learning and ensure access to information for all.
