September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Public Libraries of Warren County want to make sure that all residents in Warren County have the smartest card of all - a library card.
Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
A library card has always been the most important school supply of all. Kids can come to the library to get homework help and check out books, but they can also play games, check out music, books and DVDs and use the Internet to help make after school life fun. There's a lot happening at the public libraries in Warren County and the best part for both kids and parents is that it's all free with a library card.
Getting a library card is easy. Bring a photo ID that confirms that you are a Warren County resident, complete a registration card, and instantly receive your free library card that can be used at any of the five public libraries in Warren County.
Observed since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all.
