September is Library Card Sign-up Month when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) 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.

Libraries play a crucial role in the education and development of children, offering a variety of programs to spark creativity and stimulate an interest in reading and learning. 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, explore new passions and interests, and find their voice.

This year, Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, will serve as ALA honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month.

Through the month of September, the Great Neck Library Children’s Department invites kids of all ages to stop by all of our locations to fill out a bingo card. Complete all of the activities on the street such as borrowing an audiobook or Wonderbook, attending a program at the Levels Teen Center, or learning a new language, and win prizes!

Great Neck Library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving community needs. To sign up for a library card or to learn more about the library’s resources and programs, please visit us at greatnecklibrary.org.
