This September, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a new mission with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to champion the power of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair.
On this mission, Wonder Woman will remind the public that there is nothing more empowering than signing up for your own library card. Through access to technology, media resources and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in school and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their passions and dreams.
In the coming months, Wonder Woman will appear in free Library Card Sign-up Month graphics, including print and digital public service announcements (PSAs) and library card artwork. Free tools, such as a template press release, a proclamation and sample social media posts will also be provided through the Library Card Sign-up Month webpage.
Wonder Woman posters, stickers and bookmarks are currently available for purchase through the ALA Store.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries unite together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
