Library Cards Still Important
September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. Now, I know a lot of folks read on their tablets and e-readers, but the library still has a lot to offer. For one, it's free. Two, it is an opportunity to actually see and flip-through books, talk about books, and perhaps be enticed by a genre one may not think to search for online (by the way, this happened to me with the Twilight series and I was instantly addicted). So, as you get ready to welcome parents for open house this month (or even conferences later in the fall) consider setting up a spot in your room where parents can sign their child up for a library card if they don't have one. If you can stock that spot with a volunteer, even better.
