September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
The East Baton Rouge Parish Library is joining with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a FREE Library card. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school, and they can turn to the Library for materials, programs and knowledgeable Library staff to support academic achievement.
This year, crime fighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, are teaming up with the ALA to encourage everyone to get this all-access pass to FREE use of online databases and training resources, print books and magazines, e-books and online magazines, audiobooks, CDs, DVDs and BluRay, streaming movies, online homework help, genealogy research, workforce development, Arduino kits, children’s storytimes, meeting rooms, free computer classes, programs and events on all kinds of subjects and so much more! For more information about Library Card Sign-Up Month, signing up for a free East Baton Rouge Parish Library card or for general information about the Library, call (225) 231-3710, pick up a copy of our monthly newsletter The Source or visit the Library’s website at www.ebrpl.com.
