SEPTEMBER IS LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH
DECATUR, MICHIGAN – – – – Van Buren District Library is joining libraries across the country in celebrating the 30th anniversary of Library Card Sign-up Month. Since 1987, September has been designated as the opportune time to make sure that students and life-long learners have the best access card of all – a library card.
As an added incentive to parents, VBDL is offering “Welcome to the Library” gifts to all children who get their very first library card in September. VBDL patrons who have not yet exchanged their cards with the district’s former logo for a new one may do so, at no charge, during Library Card Sign-up Month.
A valid VBDL card is a ticket to free educational resources and activities for individuals, children and families, such as cultural programs, computer classes, Story Time, MakerSpaces and STEAM-based activities.
Applying for a card is a simple procedure at any one of VBDL’s seven locations. For more information about residency requirements, visit the library online at VBDL.org or the nearest branch. Van Buren District Library is headquartered in Decatur with branches in Bangor, Bloomingdale, Covert, Gobles, Lawrence and Mattawan.
