This September marks the 30th anniversary of National Library Card Sign Up Month. This year’s Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chairs is crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans.
As honorary chairs, DC’s Teen Titans will remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Do you have a library card? Do your kids have library cards?
Every time I have moved to a new city I always made it a point to go and get a library card because they are free to get and you can borrow books, magazines, video games, dvds, music and so much more. Since living in Montreal I have had four library cards at four different libraries but when the island of Montreal merged a lot of the local cities didn’t so now you have to pay to be a member of these libraries so now I only go to the two libraries that are in my area because as a resident I don’t have to pay.
I have noticed that over the summer we borrow alot more books/magazines/cds then any other time of the year and that is due to the fact that Michael does various library activities and it makes returning books so much easier then other times of the year.
So for the month of September, I plan on trying to review some library books. I managed to pick up a whole bunch of books that I don’t think I would have would picked up otherwise and a bunch of books off my wishlist to read. I will also be showcasing some of the cds/movies and magazines I have borrowed as well.
Do you take advantage of your local library? What do you tend to borrow the most?
