September is National Library Card Sign-up Month

The Most Important School Supply of All


September is Library Card Sign-up Month—a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. For students, a library card is essential. A library card provides access to ebooks and a multitude of online research tools and resources .

A library card at Coraopolis Memorial Library also means access to computers and free Internet access. For those without Internet access at home, a library card may mean the difference between failing and having a successful school year.

Enjoy all the perks your library card has to offer, and be sure to share what your library means to you with your friends, family and colleagues who don’t have their own library card. Tell them the true value of libraries, and how the library benefits you.

Find out ALL you the great things you can do with your card! If you don’t have a library card, sign up for your free card today!
