Library Card Sign-Up Month

librarycard“The Smartest Card. Get it. Use it. @ your library”

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and JMRL wants to make sure that your child has the smartest card of all — a library card. Observed since 1987, this is a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind librarycard parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Library cards are FREE and bring you a world of opportunity— no matter what your age.

Here are all the wonderful things that you can do with a JMRL library card:
