Join in the American Library Association’s Library Card Contest! Here’s the basics, and go to their site for full details!
“September is Library Card Sign-up Month and we want to know how you use your library card to learn, explore, or even just to relax. Or maybe your library card just makes you want to shout, “Excelsior,” like our Honorary Chair for Library Card Sign-up Month and legendary comic book creator, Stan Lee.
Share why you value your library card using our Library Card Sign-up Month word balloons or create your own. Creativity is encouraged! Share on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #LibraryCardSignUp or add to our “My Library Card…” Flickr Group between September 2-23, 2014. All participants will be entered in a drawing for a comic book prize package.”
