Just in time for Library Card Sign-Up Month, an American Library Association slideshow identifies 60 ways to use a library card. How may of them have you tried?
Library Card Sign-up Month is celebrated each September at the beginning of the school year. Its purpose is to emphasize that a library card is “the most important school supply of all.” In promotional resources, Honorary Chairman Luol Deng of the Chicago Bulls declares that a library card is “The smartest card in my wallet.”
“A library card is a key resource in achieving academic success,” according to the ALA, “and the library is the perfect place to spend quality family time together.”
