PPLC Program Guide

September is Library Card Sign-up Month!

Libraries are about more than books, and this is a time when the nation's public libraries highlight the value of a library card, especially here in Pinellas County!

A Pinellas Public Library card is your ticket to free educational resources and activities that bring families together. Libraries not only provide resources to parents and children that support early literacy and lifelong learning, but truly transform how families spend time together. Card holders have free access to a family destination that provides a spectrum of free services including family story times, homework help, tech classes, and teen game nights.

Family is integral to a child's development, as shown by data collected by the Harvard Family Research Project and the Public Library Association, a division of the American Library Association (ALA). The recent study highlights the importance of libraries, with their rich digital environment and hands-on resources, and skilled librarians in helping parents to guide their children's learning. Public libraries are spaces, it notes, that embrace the entire family across every generation.

Public libraries throughout Pinellas County are bringing families together for both learning and quality personal time. They are serving a crucial need especially in areas with immigrant populations with low-incomes. In Pinellas County Public Library's Family Literacy Programs offers parents, caregivers and children the opportunity to hone their literacy skills in an atmosphere that promotes togetherness.

Throughout Library Card Sign-Up Month, your public libraries will offer a variety of incentives to spur signups and renewals. See inside this program guide for more information on a variety of fabulous programs and services at your local library.

This year's Library Card Sign-Up Month Honorary Chair is Snoopy, the world-famous beagle featured in the Peanuts comic strip, calling attention to the supportive role libraries and library professionals play in the education, academic achievement and development of children. We want to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the rst step towards lifelong learning!
