Though any day of the year is a great day to sign up for a card, nationally since 1987 September is celebrated as sign up for a library card month. September marks the beginning of the school year and is great timing to ensure every child gets their library card. Of course, adults are welcome too. Library cards fuel academic success and open doors to learning. 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 the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams and passions. “The only thing that you absolutely have to know is the location of the library." -Albert Einstein “I have found the most valuable thing in my wallet is my library card." -Laura Bush We couldn't agree more with these quotes and are here to serve patrons of all ages and backgrounds through our programs and collections. Marion Public Library , along with libraries everywhere, continue to adapt and evaluate services to meet the evolving needs of our community.
