September is library card month

Library cards empower students and fuel academic success

September is Library Card Month, and the Sonoma County Library joins libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers, students and everyone else that  is an important step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

There is nothing more empowering than your library card. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, a library card gives students tools to succeed and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions.

Libraries enhance home-based learning, from early literacy programs to virtual homework help and GED classes, by helping transform lives and communities through education. At the Sonoma County Library, you’ll find a wide variety of educational resources and activities.

“Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children,” said Sonoma County Library Director Ann Hammond. “We have library programs that serve learners of all ages and backgrounds, from online tutoring, to reading lists, to virtual programs.”

Sonoma County Library continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. To sign up for a library card or to rediscover your library card and learn more about the library’s resources and programs, visit

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