Library Card Sign-Up Month Proclmation...

Library Card Sign-Up Month 2010 Proclamation

Whereas, the smartest card is a library card;

Whereas, in times of economic hardship, Americans turn to – and depend on – their libraries and librarians;

Whereas, libraries nationwide design and offer programs tailored to meet their local community’s economic needs;

Whereas, public library staff help students learn how to perform age-appropriate Internet searches, online tutoring and Web-based resources for homework help using free, public-access computers;

Whereas, children who have library cards and use the library perform better in school;

Whereas, by motivating children to read, librarians create lifelong readers, and that makes for better citizens, which makes for a healthier democracy;

Whereas, the most important school supply of all is a library card;

Whereas, be it resolved that I, the Misfit Librarian, proclaim September, Library Card Sign-Up Month and encourage everyone to sign up for the smartest card @ your library.

NOTE: I didn't write this, I got this off of the American Library Association (ALA) website here.
