As the back-to-school season rolls around, there’s one essential item that might not be on your typical shopping list but can provide incredible value for students and parents alike – a library card. Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been a September tradition, coinciding with the start of the school year. This annual event is a nationwide effort, championed by the American Library Association and libraries across the country, to ensure that every child gets the chance to have their very own library card.

A Wealth of Resources, One Card Away

At Six Mile Regional Library District, we believe that knowledge should be accessible to all, regardless of financial constraints. A library card isn’t just a piece of plastic; it’s a key to a world of educational opportunities and resources that can save you hundreds of dollars throughout the school year. Our public librarians and dedicated staff are here to assist parents and caregivers in making the most of these resources.

From cutting-edge STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) programs and engaging activities to educational apps that make learning fun, our library is a hub of interactive learning. Whether it’s in-person or virtual homework help, our library staff is committed to supporting students on their academic journey. And for those seeking to boost their technological skills, we offer workshops and one-on-one appointments that cover a range of topics, making sure you stay up-to-date with the digital world.
