Treasures on the Shelves – It’s National Library Pay-Per-View Month – Kenbridge Victoria Dispatch

Treasures on the shelves — It’s National Library subscription month

Posted at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, September 16, 2022

September is the National Library card registration month. As many of us were growing up, the library card was a very important part of going to school. With our library cards, we were able to pursue answers to questions that may not have been answered during the school day. We could learn to build or craft something that interests us or just find a new story to read.

National Library Card Signup Month was created to encourage people of all ages to use the public library by signing up for their own library card. To understand the history of this festival, we can go back to the roots of the first libraries.

For the earliest example of what we know as a library, go back to 2600 BC. One of the greatest libraries of all time was the Library of Alexandria. Like modern libraries, it was known to be a storehouse of knowledge. Celebrating Library Card Month is very simple for adults and children in our community. Nothing like a library card to open windows on the world. The choices are endless for kids and adults, as you can enter fiction, non-fiction, mysteries, graphic novels, biographies, magazines, reference or genealogy research. Just go out and get a library card ASAP.

It is free and available from the Ripberger Public Library in Kenbridge or the Victoria Public Library in Victoria.
