September is National Library Card Sign-up Month

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, and the Buena Park Library District wants to remind you that "The Smartest Card is @ your library" - it's your library card. "Your library card is your ticket to opportunity," says Kathleen Wade, Public Services Manager. "What other card in your wallet gives you free access to books and CDs, magazines and movies and all sorts of other resources that can change your life - or just make it a little more fun?"

"Smartest Card" activities at the Buena Park Library will begin as a new user signs up for a new library card: he or she will receive a bookmark, pencil, refrigerator magnet and a "Bookstore Buck" to be used towards purchases of used books in our Volunteer Guild Bookstore. New Library card holders will also get a chance to enter three opportunity drawings: a Children's backpack with a book; a Teen backpack with a book; and a Buena Park Library book bag for adults with a book.

For more information on how you can sign up for your library card, visit the Buena Park Library District at 7150 La Palma Ave., between Knott and Western Avenues in Buena Park, call 714-826-4100 or see the library's Web site. The Library's hours are Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Observed since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when the ALA and libraries across the country remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Remember, the best kept secret should not be a secret...tell a friend that September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month!
