September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Highland Park Harvey R. "Bum" Bright Library joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning. This year, Marley Dias, founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, author and executive producer, is taking on a new role as honorary chair of Library Card Sign-Up Month and promoting the power of a library card this September.
Through access to technology, media resources, and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions. With a library card, you can discover new and exciting worlds! From borrowing audiobooks to finding online homework help to attending virtual Do-It-Yourself classes, there is so much you can access with a library card.
Need a library card? There is no charge for a library card if you are a resident of the Town of Highland Park. Apply in person, online, or by phone, 214-559-9400.
