Do You Have a Library Card?
Sep 23, 2016 02:00AM
A library card also provides access to a variety of digital media, including ebooks. Recent figures show more than 93 percent of public libraries offer ebooks and other digital content. More than 200 million checkouts of digital content at libraries is expected throughout 2016.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year to highlight the value of a library card. This year’s Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair is Snoopy, the world-famous beagle featured in the Peanuts comic strip, calling attention to the supportive role libraries and library professionals play in the education and development of children.
