As students head back to school this September, we encourage parents to visit the Kirkendall Public Library and make sure their children and teens sign up for the most important school supply of all – a library card.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the smartest card you can own.
Studies show that children learn best when they have the opportunity to pursue their own interests. Students can access free databases, attend programs and activities that provide an added value to the educational experience.
The library is not just for students, it has something for everyone. Our library offers books, magazines, audio books, DVDs, e books, computers, software and other multimedia materials that can be borrowed simply by showing a library card. And librarians are on hand to help.
This September, open the door to a world of possibilities for the student in your life, and sign up for a library card today.
