If you haven’t signed up for your library card, here are a couple of reasons why you should.

September is Library Card Sign Up month and libraries across the nation want to issue you a library card. Today’s libraries are centrally located to schools and neighborhoods, so community members and students have access to scores of resources. What does a library have, you ask? Aside from books and magazines, card holders can check out music CDs, videos, and audio resources. Online support allows users to download music, video and e-books.

According to the Department of Education, 44% of Americans do not have a library card. Here’s what a library card can do for you:
1. Opens new worlds
2. Expert help
3. Getting connected
4. Student Success

Open a world of possibilities by going to your local library to get your card today.
