Your YDL card now has no fines attached, and there’s no better time to get one!
This September, celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month by checking out all the perks that come with a YDL card, including our brand new Library of Things Collection.
Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, have been named honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month. They’ll join the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to sing the praises of a library card. Also in September, the sisters’ debut picture book, Loud Mouse, about a little mouse named Dee who loves to sing very loudly, will be released by Disney Hyperion.
“The library is a great place to find your voice,” says Menzel.
The Library Card Sign-Up Month co-chairs want you to explore all the library has to offer, including new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.
“The library is where your imagination sings,” Cara Mentzel adds. “Get your library card and ‘check it out’ today.”
