September 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.

Your library card opens doors…to books, online databases with reliable information, computers and contact with others…so many things.
September is the traditional start of a new school year. Parents and children are encouraged to sign-up for a library card. If you already have one, make sure it is up to date. Your library card is an important school supply.
Parents (or legal guardians) need to register for children. All you need is proof of current address.
In these tough economic times, your public library card offers you free access to thousands of books, DVDs, audios, magazines and newspapers. You can viist your library for programs for children, computer classes for adults, reading, using the computers, and finding information.
Library staff are eager to help you find information or a good book. Your library card allows you access to books and information, free of charge to the user.
Public libraries are supported by taxpayers. Appropriations by County Commissions and the Florida State Legislature provide an operating budget for libraries. Library staff work hard to use public funds wisely and provide information for all to use.
