September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month–a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.

Library cards are generally free to those living in the library's service area. In most cases, borrowing privileges are granted on the spot.

CLUES LogoIf you do not have a card, stop in the Cumberland County Library with identification, fill out a library card registration form and receive a CLUES library card. With a library card, a person may use the computer, checkout books, videos/DVD's, audio books, cd's and more. The CLUES library card can be used at Bridgeton, Cumberland County, Millville and Vineland libraries.
