A time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Providing free access to STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) programs, educational apps, in-person and virtual homework help and technology workshops, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies available. Library Card Sign-up Month is a time to highlight the supportive role libraries and librarians play in transforming lives and communities through education.
