Library cards empower students and fuel academic success

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Kewanna Public Library  joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

There is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions.

Libraries offer everything from literacy programs to a variety of programs helping transform lives and communities through education. At Kewanna Public Library, you’ll find a wide variety of educational resources and activities.

“Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children,” said Linda Ruhl, Programming Librarian.   “We have library programs that serve students of all ages and backgrounds such as Teens N Tweens Night, Game On, STEAM Maker Space Time, and Saturday Story Time.”

Kewanna Public Library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. To learn more about the library’s resources and programs, please visit www.kewanna.lib.in.us  or our Facebook Page (Kewanna Union Township Public Library).

This year, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a mission to champion the power of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair. In her new role, Wonder Woman will promote the value of libraries and encourage everyone to get their very own library card.  During the month, the ALA and libraries unite together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
