Libraries Are Wonderful!
Library cards empower students and fuel academic success. Kids, sign up for a library card during the month of September and you will receive a complimentary book and the opportunity to receive additional giveaways. More opportunities are available to any child who uses their Roselle Public Library District card during the month of September.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Roselle Public Library District joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers and students that singing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries unite together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
There is nothing more empowering than signing up for your 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 help to transform lives and communities through education. At Roselle Public Library District, you’ll find a wide variety of educational resources and activities, including .
Roselle Public Library, along with libraries everywhere, continue to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. Visit the Library to sign up for a library card, or you may apply for a temporary library card online (temporary cards may be used immediately to access online services and expire after seven days).
This year, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a mission to champion the power of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair. In her new role, Wonder Woman will promote the value of libraries and encourage everyone to get their very own library card.
