Library Card Sign-Up Month!
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Haverford Township Free Library wants to make sure that "children of all ages" in our region have the smartest card of all – a library card. Public library programming and books for children make a difference in the lives of students. By providing school-age children with engaging programs and amazing collections, students from all backgrounds become excited and enthusiastic readers.
A library card has always been the most important school supply of all. Today’s libraries are thriving technology hubs that millions rely as either their first or only choice for computer and Internet access. In doing so, libraries provide children with not only the tools to be literate, but information literate as well. There’s a lot happening at HTFL and the best part for both children and parents – in these though economic times - is that it’s all free with a library card.
Getting a library card is easy. Observed since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all.
