September Is Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Libraries play a crucial role in the education and development of children, offering a variety of programs to spark creativity and stimulate an interest in reading and learning. Through access to technology, media resources, and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams, explore new passions and interests, and find their voice.

At Clermont County Public Library, guests of all ages can find a variety of educational resources and activities, including school readiness storytimes, STEAM kits, 3D printing, and informational programs on many great topics.

“Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children,” said Christine Wick, director “We have library programs that serve students of all ages and backgrounds.”

During September, visit any of our 10 branches and receive a free tote bag while supplies last when you sign up for or use your library card.

This year, Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author, and educator Cara Mentzel, will serve as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month. Idina and Cara are excited to remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want us to explore all the library has to offer, including new children’s books and bestsellers, access to technology, and educational programming.

Visit your local branch soon. Our friendly staff members are always willing to help.
