Celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month

9:53 AM Posted by Lori Calabrese

This September, Olympic gold medalist, 2008 WNBA Most Valuable Player and 2009 winner of the Nickelodeon Kid's Choice Award for favorite female athlete, Candace Parker has been named Honorary Chair of Library Sign-up Month. As Honorary Chair Candace Parker has donated her image to both print and radio public service announcements (PSAs) advocating the value of having a library card.

Observed since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month is a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. The month encourages all libraries to focus for a month on extending its reach and message into the community it serves.
