Vail library celebrates Library Card Sign-up Month

VAIL — September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Vail Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most important school supply of all — a free library card.

Resources at the Vail Public Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement. Students can use their library cards from home, too. The library offers access to educational resources like Britannica for Kids, Kids Search, Middle Search Plus, Student Research Center, TOPIC Search, Universal Class and many more resources for homework help.

“Our library provides all types of students with the tools they need to succeed,” said Lori A. Barnes, town librarian. “We provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home — all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is the most important school supply of all.”

Throughout the course of the month, the library will host a number of activities, including outreach to the local kindergarten classes at Red Sandstone, Vail Mountain School and Eagle County Charter Academy.
