September is Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-Up MonthSeptember marks the 25th anniversary of Library Card Sign-up Month—a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all and it’s free.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. It is a time when the ALA and libraries across the country join together to remind parents and children that signing up for a library card is the first step in starting the school year off right.

“The library card is the smartest card in my wallet. Sign up for yours today.” Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh Steelers, safety, spokesperson for the 2012 American Library Association’s public service ads.

Holiday in Skyrim

Gaming Showcase:   Holiday in Skyrim, Monday, December 19, 3pm at Bradford Co. Public Library

Everybody is on vacation…Let’s play video games.

Get your hands on the Elder Scrolls v. Skyrim during this Decembers gaming showcase.  The plan is to setup SKYRIM (a game of the year contender) on a huge screen and pass the controller around and see what happens.  Why will this work?  SKYRIM is a giant open-world game with random events–including dragon attacks.

Curse against book stealers

For him that stealeth a Book from this Library, let it change into a serpent in his hand and rend him. Let him be struck with Palsy, and all his Limbs blasted. Let him languish in Pain crying aloud for Mercy and let there be no sur-cease to his Agony till he sink in Dissolution. Let Bookworms gnaw his Entrails in token of the Worm that dieth not, and when at last he goeth to his final Punishment, let the flames of Hell consume him for ever and aye.”
– Monastery of San Pedro, Barcelona
