From the American Library Association press release:
September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Throughout the month libraries across the country have been working hard to remind parents and caregivers that a library is the most important school supply children and teens can have in achieving academic success.
For libraries still looking to promote Library Card Sign-up Month, free downloadable tools are available through the Library Card Sign-up Month website. Tools include downloadable print public service announcements (PSAs) featuring the Chicago Bulls’ Luol Deng and Disney’s Princess Belle, as well audio PSAs, a sample press release, PSA scripts and proclamation.
Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Thousands of public and school libraries join together each fall in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for a library card.
The Campaign for America’s is Libraries is the ALA’s public awareness campaign that promotes the value of libraries and librarians. Thousands of libraries of all types – across the country and around the globe – use the Campaign’s @ your library® brand. The Campaign is made possible in part by ALA’s Library Champions.
