September is Library Card Sign-up Month

A library card is a free ticket to educational and recreational resources that the whole family can enjoy together. Pinellas County Public Libraries provide a range of free services and resources for parents and children including family story times, homework help, tech classes, book clubs, crafting, e-resources, and so much more!

In celebration of Library Card Sign-up Month, libraries across the country will be encouraging adults as well as children to sign up for their own library card. Signing up for your first library card is a noteworthy moment in any child’s life. Your first library card is an early rite of passage that opens exciting new worlds to discover! Studies have shown that reading is an essential component for success and quality of life.

How can you celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month? It is easy! Just visit any Pinellas Public Library and sign up for a library card if you do not have one already. All you need is a photo I.D. and proof of residence in Pinellas County.
