September is Library Card Sign-up Month
September 05, 2013
It's back to school time. The perfect time for getting a free library card. Having a library card is an important piece of school success. It provides access to 270 databases full of information on a variety of subjects at all Mid-Continent Public Library branches. In addition, 265 of them are available for remote access with your library card. One of my favorites is World Book Online. It has sounds, pictures, videos, and animations to make the information come alive.
The Library can be an educational support center for students and parents. Using the Library to read for fun is one the most important activities that parents can encourage their child to do. Reading sparks curiosity and imagination. A library card can open up the many worlds, real and imaginary, one can find in books.
When you have a library card and come to the Library, you can find a library staff member ready and willing to help you find the information that you need. They are experts at locating books for specific age groups and on any topic you can imagine.
A library card will give you free access to eBooks, downloadable magazines, and downloadable audiobooks for the most popular devices (and a few devices that aren't as popular). Also, you can use the Freegal app to download 3 free songs a week.
A library card is the most important piece of plastic you can carry with you. It allows you to choose between a visit to the Library to get to know a great group of knowledgeable and helpful people. Or, if you choose, you can access our virtual library and still find all the information you will need to succeed.
Oh, and one more thing, if you are having trouble with your homework try visiting our Live Homework Help from Tutor.com. You will connect live, one-on-one, with expert tutors who can help you with your homework assignments. This help is available seven days a week for grades K-12.
Can you see all the awesome things a MCPL library card can provide you access to? What are you waiting for? Hurry to the Library and get your library card during Library Card Sign-up Month. We are waiting to see you.
