Library Card Sign-up Month Hugh Success
(Jackson, TN) – September was Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Jackson-Madison County Library joined with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student had the most important school supply of all – a free library card. For the fourth year, Jackson City Councilman Ernest Brooks II joined with the library to help promote the event in Jackson-Madison County. After a brief program, children who signed up for a library card were treated to free books, fun activities and refreshments.
“We had a very impressive number of registrations this year. We are thankful to Councilman Brooks for his support in promoting the library and this event. We look forward to working with him again next year,” said Dinah Harris, Library Director. Corecon Bond, Chyna Gray, Kaitlyn Muchnitch, Andrea Simmons and Serenity Williams were the five students who won the drawing for a free Kindle Fire ©.
The event was also supported by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., Butterflies and Bookworms Book club and Ex-NFL player Artist Hicks.
Today’s libraries aren’t only a place of quiet study, but also creative and engaging community centers where students can collaborate using new technologies or just relax with peers. The Jackson-Madison County library offers access to a variety of print and digital resources including e-books and databases that can be accessed in person or online.
“I am proud to partner with the library to promote not only Library Card Sign-up Month, and early childhood literacy in Jackson-Madison County,” said Councilman Brooks.
