This September, crimefighting DC Super Heroes, the Teen Titans, will team up with the American Library Association (ALA) to promote the value of a library card. As honorary chairs, DC’s Teen Titans will remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
The focus is really on getting teens to use their library, and help build important skills for academics and life, but anyone can join in on the fun. Recently, I picked up an alumni card from Loyola, where I attended grad school, that lets me check out books and also access electronic resources while I'm on campus. And Chicago's Harold Washington Library is one of my favorite places to write. Though I already have all the library cards I need/am eligible to get, I'll definitely be showing my libraries some love this month.
How are you planning to celebrate?
