[ARCHIVED] September Is National Library Card Sign-Up Month

A library card is the smartest card in your wallet

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (August 28, 2015) – Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. September is national Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Show Low Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all — a free library card. Adults and seniors, too, can sign up and use their free library card to cultivate their love of reading and learning.

Resources at Show Low Public Library are available to anyone with a library card. The library recently increased borrowing limits on most items up to eight each of audiobooks, literacy kits, magazines, movies, music and nonfiction books, for a total borrowing limit of up to 25 items total.

You can depend on the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement. You can even gain access to free online tutoring through the library’s website. Show Low Public Library provides early literacy storytimes for preschool age children, computer and technology classes for teenagers and adults, and a variety of monthly events, including book clubs and author events. There’s something for everyone at the library and it’s all free with a library card.
