(ATLANTA, GA) – September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Atlanta Public Schools (APS) joins with the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System to make sure that our students have the most important school supply of all – a free library card.
Resources at the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System are available to all APS teachers, students, and parents. Library card holders can turn to the library for materials as well as programs and services that support academic achievement.
Students can use their library cards from home, too. Atlanta-Fulton Public Library offers access to important online educational resources, likeThe World Book Encyclopedia, The World Almanac® for Kids, and BookFlix.
“Atlanta-Fulton Public library provides students, teachers, and families with the tools they need to succeed,” says Warren Goetzel, Atlanta Public Schools Media Services Coordinator. “Atlanta-Fulton Public Library provides exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that can be accessed from the library or from home – all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all.”
Throughout the course of the month, APS school library media centers will host a number of Library Card Sign-up Month activities.
