September is Library Card Sign-up Month!


From Nicholas Jackson, MSILS/M.Litt. Head of Information Services, Parsippany-Troy Hills Public Library System.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. 

During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. 

The Parsippany Troy Hills Public Library System offers its community even more savings, from Museum Passes to eBooks, hotspots, sewing machines, streaming films, study space, to a Poster Printer, and beyond! 

During the month of September, the Parsippany Troy Hills Public Library System will be giving out stickers to those who sign-up for a library card, as well as, being entered into a raffle for tickets to the Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium

Throughout the school year, public librarians and library staff will assist parents and caregivers with saving hundreds of dollars on educational resources and services for students. 

From free access to STEAM programs/activities, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help, and technology workshops to the expertise of librarians, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available.
