September is Library Card Signup Month

A library card is your child’s ticket to academic achievement!
2014 library card signup Stan LeeEvery parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Franklin Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at Franklin Public Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement. Students can also use their library cards from home. Our library offers access to important educational resources, many of which can be accessed from home, as well as e-book lending.
Throughout the course of the month, the library will host a door prize drawing for anyone who signs up for a library card during the month. The library is open Monday through Friday, 10 AM to 8 PM, and Saturday 10 AM to 5PM. Anyone who lives within the Franklin School District and Sugarcreek Borough can get a free library card. For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Franklin Public Library in person or learn more here. And watch for the library’s table at your school Open House Night!
