FOR YOUR INFORMATION
September is library card sign-up month!
“A free library card is essential to people of all ages,” said ALA President Sari Feldman in a press release. “Through our support of education, employment, entrepreneurship, engagement and empowerment, libraries are transforming to create individual opportunity and community progress. Libraries have proven to be a safe haven in times of crisis, a bridge across the digital divide and a catalyst for content creation through nontraditional resources such as 3D printers, recording studios, culinary classrooms and lendable tools.”
