September is Library Card Sign-Up Month: Library cards empower students and fuel academic success

(08/31/2021) – September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when the Warren-Trumbull County Public Library joins with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a free library card can save them money while offering rewards in academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Marley Dias, author, executive producer, and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, is honorary chair of Library Card Sign-Up Month this year. In her new role, Dias will promote the value of libraries and encourage everyone to get their very own library card.

Through access to technology, media resources, and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions.

Libraries offer everything from early literacy programs to online career courses and tutorials, helping transform lives and communities through education.

The Warren-Trumbull County Public Library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. From borrowing digital e-books, streaming movies, or participating in story times and events, there’s something for everyone at the library.

Warren-Trumbull County Public Library cards are issued at no cost to anyone who lives, works, or attends school in Ohio.

To sign up for a full-service library card, stop by any Warren-Trumbull County Public Library location (in Brookfield, Cortland, Howland, Liberty, Lordstown, or Warren) or visit the Bookmobile. For information about signing up for a digital library eCard, visit the library website at www.wtcpl.org.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year.
