Library Card Sign Up Month September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning! Patrons will be entered to win weekly giveaways by registering for a library card as well as using the Library.
