Library Card Sign-up Month is a celebration held each September during which librarians across the country remind parents and caregivers that a library card is the most important school supply of all.

This year, Stan Lee, comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the Hulk, X-men, Iron Man and the Fantastic Four, joins us as Honorary Chair.

A library card is a key resource in achieving academic success, and the library is the perfect place to spend quality family time together.

This September visit your local library with your children and teens to and sign up for a library card!
