A library card is a child’s ticket to academic achievement. Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways to ensure a child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library.
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Northwestern Regional Library 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 the Northwestern Regional Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement. The Northwestern Regional Library offers access to important educational resources on our website, www.nwrl.org, as well as through NC Live (www.nclive.org).
Today’s students learn differently than their predecessors, with studies indicating that students most effectively learn when they are allowed to follow their personal interest. Libraries and librarians are on the frontlines of engaging these students, making a library card an essential tool for inspiring a passion for learning. Students can use their library cards from home, too.
Each of the libraries provides all types of students a welcoming atmosphere where they can explore, discover and create. Students learn in a variety of ways, thanks to the resources available at the library we can meet the needs of all ages and types of learners. Whether that is through homework help, STEAM programs or access print and e-books, the library has something for everyone — all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all.
Throughout the course of the month, the Northwestern Regional Library branches will be hosting a number of activities to celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month. This September, open the door to a world of possibilities for the student in your life and sign up for a library card today. For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit any of the branches in Alleghany, Stokes, Surry, or Yadkin counties in person or visit the library online at www.nwrl.org.
