September is Library Card Month

Columbia, S.C. – September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the South Carolina State Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most important school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at your local South Carolina 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 use their library cards from home as well. South Carolina public libraries provide access to important educational resources such as ebooks, Discus – South Carolina’s Virtual Library, StudySC – K-12 South Carolina Information, and much more!
“Our state’s public libraries provide all types of students with the tools they need to succeed,” says Dr. Curtis Rogers, Communications Director for the South Carolina State Library. “Public libraries throughout the state offer students exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources they can access from the library or from home – all with a free library card. A public library card is the most important school supply of all.”
This month at the BCLS Goose Creek branch, all adults who sign up to get a new library card will be entered to win a Reading Lovers’ Basket.
For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit your local public library in person or online.
