Special Edition Library Card To Debut In September
Smartest Card in your Wallet
Library Card Sign-up Month at the Glendora Public Library
The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life. This September, Glendora Public Library is joining with the American Library Association and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-up Month, an initiative to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a free library card.
Libraries build a foundation for children’s future success starting from the earliest stages of development. Librarians play a key role in helping children develop the basic tools for school readiness by teaching families the components of early literacy. As of 2010, children’s programs accounted for nearly two thirds of library programming in the United States, with more than 2.3 million children’s programs nationwide. Older students can also find tools for success at their local libraries, where they can access high-speed Internet and digital tools, as well as working with trained professionals on how best to use these resources.
Resources at the Glendora Public Library are available to anyone with a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement.
“The Glendora Public Library provides access and programs for students of all ages,” says Senior Librarian Cindy Romero. “There’s really something for everyone, and it’s all free with a library card.”
This September, the Glendora Public Library will debut a new, special edition Library Card designed by Charity Capilli, while supplies last. Charity was this year’s winner in the Library Card Design contest. Special edition cards will be available free of charge for all new Library accounts. Replacement cards will be available for $4.
