September is Library Card Sign-Up Month

School starts in our area this week. Does your child have a library card?

September is library card sign-up month. This is an annual nation wide initiative to remind parents that a library card is the most important of all school supplies.

Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

Registration is free to residents of all three counties in the Cooperative. Parents need to register for children. You need an ID that has your current address on it; or your old ID with an official piece of mail.
