Since 1987, the American Library Associations' 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.
