September Is Library Card Sign-up Month

According to the American Library Association "Library Card Sign-up Month was launched in 1987. Library Card Sign-up Month is a time to remind parents that a library card is the most important school supply of all. Since then, thousands of public and school libraries join each fall in a national effort to ensure every child does just that."

I'd like to recommend that every student at Redwood have a public library card. If you don't have one this is the perfect time to apply. Applications for the Marin County Free Library are available in the the library. Just ask for one.

Applications for each of the libraries in Marin is also available online.

WNBA star and Olympic champion, Candace Parker, honorary chair of Library Card Sign-up Month, says that a public library card is an essential school supply. I agree.

An Information Literacy Tutorial Series

I just came across this series of information literacy tutorials featuring the director of the Pima Community College in Arizona.
I'm hoping to do something similar for Redwood this year. Keep posted and we'll see what happens!
