A library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available. Library Card Sign-up Month is a time to highlight the supportive role libraries and librarians play in transforming lives and communities through education. 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 utilize libraries as a source of lifelong learning.

“A primary goal of the Sidney-Richland County Library is to partner with schools and school libraries to provide the best resources and materials for our Richland County kids, explains Kelly Reisig, Director. Children and their families can participate in a number of programs as well, including Tales for Tots, Storytime, Family Science Night, Cookies and Canvas, Anime Club and Teen Book and Craft Club. There’s really something for everyone and it’s all free with a library card.” Since 1987, Library Card Sign-Up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
