September = National Library Card Sign-Up Month
As students head back to school, the Hoover Public Library wants to make sure that all children and teens have the most important school supply of all -- a library card. Owning a library card provides students with the resources they need to compete academically. Public libraries provide students free access to databases of news articles, encyclopedias and test preparation materials, as well as homework help and resources. In addition, public libraries are the number one access point for free Internet, an important resource for families without access at home.
A library card is serious business, but it's also an opportunity for fun! Library card holders of all ages can get their hands on tons of fantastic books, movies, video games . . . the list goes on and on.
So what are you waiting for? Getting a library card is as easy as 1, 2, 3.
1. Drop by the big Circulation desk at the front of the library.
2. Fill out the form.
3. Show the librarian your official picture ID and proof of address.
