September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Robey Memorial Library (RML) 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 RML are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement. 

Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where students can collaborate using new technologies or just relax with peers.  Our library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources that can be accessed in person or online.

Services available with a library card include:

“Our library provides access and programs for students of all ages,” says Cate St. Clair, library director. “For preschool age children we offer early literacy and story times to encourage school readiness, for older children and teens we supplement education with hands-on activities and research databases, and for older teens we have information and tools to help prepare for college. There’s really something for everyone and it’s all free with a library card.”
