This year’s Library Card Sign-up Month in September stars “Toy Story 4” characters. As Honorary Chairs, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep, and friends are appearing in print and digital graphics to promote the value of a library card. The “Toy Story 4” crew is also being featured in customizable library card artwork.
All the free graphics and artwork can be downloaded through the Library Card Sign-up Month Toolkit (an account is required but registration is free, and anyone can join). Sample tools, including a proclamation, a template press release, radio PSA scripts and social media posts are also available for libraries to use. The tools remind the public of all the resources available with a library card.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
