Getting your first library card…what was it like?

August 31, 2009

In tough economic times, parents might find it harder than ever to make sure their children have everything they need for school.  Luckily, the most important school supply of all does not cost a thing.  It’s a library card.  A library card can give kids access to free homework help, materials to research their papers or a source for their next book report.  And a library card opens up a world of exciting stories for a young person.

Do you remember the moment when you got your first library card? In celebration of September as Library Card Sign-up Month, we invite you to share your first library card experience. How old were you? How did you feel getting your card? How has it made a difference in your life?

This month, bring a friend – young or old — to the library and let them experience the joy of their first library card, too.
