History of Library Card Sign-up Month
According to the American Library Association, the Library Card Sign-up Month was first launched in 1987 to meet the challenge of then Secretary of Education William J. Bennett who said: "Let's have a national campaign...every child should obtain a library card - and use it." Since then, thousands of public and school libraries join each fall in a national effort to ensure every child does just that.
In most areas, library cards are free to people living in the library's service area, and students can have their own card, inspiring a sense of pride and responsibility. Throughout American history, libraries have played an important role in the education and development of children. 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.
In addition to books, magazines, CDs and DVDs, computers, games, software and other multimedia materials, libraries increasing offer access to e-books and e-book readers. Seventy-six percent of libraries offer access to e-books, an increase of 9 percent from last year. Mobile devices, including e-book readers are available at 39 percent of libraries.
