Find Your Treasure @ the Library -- September is Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month - 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.

Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. 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.

During the month of September the Buena Park Library District, located at 7150 La Palma Avenue between Knott and Western Avenues, will be giving all 1st time new borrowers a treasure bag. Inside they will find a pencil, a bookmark and a special pirate coloring page. In addition, all new borrowers will be able to enter an opportunity drawing for a family pack of 4 Knott’s Berry Farm Theme Park tickets generously donated by Knott’s Berry Farm.

To get your free library card, present verification of your current California street address (e.g. CA Driver’s License or ID card) to the Check-Out desk. Children 17 and under must have parent or guardian present.

The Buena Park Library has books, magazines, DVD’s, Videos, music CD’s, audiobooks, Internet connections and a variety of databases than can be accessed from our website. The Library also offers several programs to stimulate an interest in reading and learning. Preschool story hours expose young children to the joy of reading, and our librarians are on hand to help recommend materials suitable for various ages and interests. You can also contact the Library at 714-826-4100 at extension125 or visit us at our website to find out more about what we have to offer.

Be a “Book-A-Neer” and find your treasure @ the Library!
