  • September is Library Card Sign Up Month

    library-card-sign-up-month-facebook-coverThe Monticello-Union Township Public Library will join with the American Library Association and other public libraries nationwide this month for Library Card Sign Up Month.

    Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries join together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. For students, a library card is essential.

    A library card provides access to e-books, homework help and a multitude of online research tools and resources for their studies. Resources at the Monticello-Union Township Public Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Patrons can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement and lifelong learning.

    Students can use their library cards from home, too.  Our library offers access to important educational resources, like e-books, online homework help, and the INSPIRE resource center.

    In celebration of Library Card Sign-Up Month, the library staff will dress up for different themes during the month on Wednesdays. Visit our Facebook page to vote for the staff member with the best costume. Don’t have a library card? Sign up and be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift card.  Food for fines is back! Throughout the month of September patrons may donate a non-perishable food item for each $1.00 in existing overdue fines up to $15.00 per library card.

    For more information about signing up for a library card, contact the Monticello-Union Township Public Library at 574-583-2665 or email director@monticello.lib.in.us
