September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and everyone at Warsaw Public Library wants to make sure that your child is among the two-thirds of Americans that carry the smartest card of all – a library card.
Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
“A library card has always been the most important school supply of all. “Kids can come to the library to get homework help and use non-fiction books, but they can also use the Internet and check out some fun books to read to make after school life a little more fun.
A recent study by the American Library Association also showed that families use libraries to spend time together. Forty-four percent of survey respondents report taking their children to the library for this reason.

For more information on how you can sign up for your library card, visit Warsaw Public Library at 130 N. Main St, call 585-786-5650 or see the library’s Web site at http://www.warsaw.pls-net.org/ .
