• September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when the nation’s public libraries highlight the value of a library card. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. It is a time when the American Library Association and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step toward academic achievement and lifelong learning. A public library card is your ticket to free educational resources and activities that bring families together. Libraries not only provide resources to parents and children that support early literacy and lifelong learning, but they truly transform how families spend time together. Card holders have free access to a family destination that provides a spectrum of free services, including online educational databases, DVD’s, and books for all ages. During the month of September, the Yankton Community Library, 515 Walnut Street, is hosting a variety of activities for new and returning card members. Everyone who signs up for a library card during September receives a certificate for a Dairy Queen Dilly Bar. Everyone should allow a few minutes during one of your visits to make a simple protector for your library card that will fit into your wallet. There will also be “Golden Library Cards” hidden throughout the library which can be turned in at the Circulation Desk for a treat. This year’s Library Card Sign-Up Month Honorary Chair is Snoopy, the world-famous beagle featured in the Peanuts comic strip. He calls attention to the supportive role libraries and library professionals play in the education, academic achievement, and development of children. Visit your local library today and, if you don’t already have a library card, get one. It is your ticket to a whole new world! For further information, contact the library at 668-5275.
