Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to coincide with the start of the school year. Throughout the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite together in a national effort to encourage every child to register for a library card in order to ensure they have access to the numerous resources available. Award-winning entertainer and philanthropist Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, will serve as honorary chairs of this year’s endeavor. Idina and Cara are excited to remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want us to explore all the library has to offer, including new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.
