The Smartest Card

  

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Readlyn Community Library
wants to make sure that your child has the smartest card of all:

A LIBRARY CARD!

George Lopez talks about "The Smartest Card"  (YouTube)

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.

  • 62 percent of adults in the U. S. have library cards

  •  Americans go to libraries more than twice as often as they go to the movies

  • There are more public libraries than McDonald’s in the United States

  • Public libraries are the number one point of online access for people without Internet connections

September is designated as “Library Card Sign up Month” and public libraries everywhere encourage the use of one of greatest free services in the nation. The message is, “the smartest card is at your library. Get it…use it!”
