Library Card Sign-Up Month is a national public awareness campaign to emphasize the importance of a library card to a child’s education. The campaign first started in 1987 as a response to then Secretary of Education, William Bennett, who stated: “Let’s have a campaign … Every child should obtain a library card and use it.”

Autobots, roll out…to the library! September is Library Card Sign-up Month.
Whether you’re upgrading your skills, scouting for knowledge and information or connecting with other heroic readers, a library card is your key to an arsenal of resources. Spark your creativity as a builder or programmer by tinkering in your library’s makerspace; mine the library’s stacks and databases for new stories and adventures; kickstart your critical thinking skills to defeat the Decepticons of misinformation lurking online. Hitting the road? Use your library card to fuel your mind with books, e-Books, audiobooks, and museum passes. Roll out and sign up for a library card today!
