During September, the seven branches of the Community District Library are joining the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-Up Month. This is a time to remind parents, caregivers and students that a library card is the first step towards academic achievement, lifelong learning, and the enjoyment of reading.

A library card opens a world of infinite possibilities through resources and services that give students the tools to succeed. From STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) programs and take home backpacks & materials; story times; or virtual homework help, libraries transform lives through education.

Libraries offer free and fun educational resources and activities that bring families and communities together. Classroom visits, story times held in the library and at places in the community, cooking and craft events, Summer Reading programs and more enrich the lives of library users.

“Our library programs serve students of all ages. For younger children, we offer early literacy resources to help them learn to read and encourage school readiness. For all students we provide access to technology and digital tools (such as 3D printers and Launchpad tablets) as well as GED resources. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning says, Jami Cromley, CDL Director." 

This year, Disney and Pixar’s “Toy Story 4” characters Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep and friends are going on adventure as Honorary Chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month. In their role, they will promote the value of a library card and bring attention to the many ways libraries transform lives and communities.

For more information about how to sign up for a library card, please visit your local Community District Library branch in Bancroft, Byron, Corunna, Lennon, Morrice, New Lothrop or Perry. To learn about upcoming programs and events visit www.mycdl.org or search Community District Library on Facebook.
