As students head back to school this fall, we encourage parents in the Santa Clara County Library District to visit the library, and make sure their children and teens sign up for the most important school supply of all— a library card.  
Library Card Sign-up Month is a time when Santa Clara County Library District reminds district residents that a library card is the smartest card you can own.  We’re pleased to report that more than 380,000 people in our district have library cards. That’s a lot of cardholders, and we’re proud to serve such a large and diverse community. But we know that not all of our residents have a library card. If you have a card, help us spread the word! Talk to your friends, neighbors, family members and community contacts about the value of a library card. If you don’t have a library card, getting one is easy. You can sign up at any of our community libraries or on our website where you can find out what your Santa Clara County Library District library card can do for you.
The district libraries are community hubs of activity and opportunity. In tough economic times, your library card gives you free access to books and computers, homework help, assistance with resumes and job searches, accurate financial information, story times, music, movies and much more. This September, open the door to a world of possibilities for yourself and for the student in your life, and sign up for a library card.
Help us celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month by visiting your community library today!
