August has been a hectic month—school is back in session and the Library has been busy with solar-eclipse excitement and the opening of our new Mt. Washington Branch Library. But now that September has arrived, we have new things to be excited about, including the beginning of our 2017–2018 Toddler Storytime & Storyhour season, a Dedication Ceremony for the new library, and our annual celebration of National Library Card Sign-up Month.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. It is a time when the American Library Association and libraries nationwide join together to remind parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is an important step towards academic success and lifelong learning. This year, we are further demonstrating the power of your library card by teaming up with local businesses to provide you with exclusive discounts and special deals! We hope you’ll have an opportunity to take advantage of these savings throughout the month—and when you do, please remember to thank participating Bullitt County businesses for supporting the Library.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any suggestions, questions, or concerns you may have.
Cheers and happy saving!
Tracy Weikel, BCPL Public Relations Coordinator
