DC’s Wonder Woman to lasso up Library Card Sign-up Month 2020
For Immediate Release

CHICAGO – This September, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a new mission with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to champion the power of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair.
On this mission, Wonder Woman will remind the public that there is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in school and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their passions and dreams.
A founding member of the Justice League, Wonder Woman is known for strength, compassion and truth. Armed with the Lasso of Truth, Wonder Woman makes a perfect ambassador to support the value of learning and the role libraries play in transforming lives and strengthening communities through education. Whether you visit your library in person or online, libraries offer everything from family storytimes and virtual homework help to access to audiobooks and museum passes.
In the coming months, Wonder Woman will appear in free Library Card Sign-up Month graphics, including print and digital public service announcements (PSAs) and library card artwork. Free tools, such as a template press release, a proclamation and sample social media posts will also be provided through the Library Card Sign-up Month webpage.
Fans can learn more about Wonder Woman at DCcomics.com. Since her introduction in October 1941 in All-Star Comics #8, Wonder Woman has graced comics, video games, headlined her own television show and feature films, and appears in the hit animated series “DC Super Hero Girls” on Cartoon Network and Netflix.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries unite together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. For more information, please visit ala.org/librarycardsignup.
