National Library Card Sign-up Month


The Most Important School Supply of All

September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Kalamazoo Public Library joins with the American Library Association and other public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all – a library card.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. For students, a library card is essential. A library card provides access to e-books, homework help and a multitude of online research tools and resources for their studies.

A library card at KPL also means access to computers and free Internet access. For those without Internet access at home, a library card may mean the difference between failing and having a successful school year.

In honor of Library Card Sign-up Month, the following Kalamazoo businesses and organizations have partnered with KPL and are offering an incentive just for showing your KPL library card during your visit. These offers are only good for the month of September* and your Kalamazoo Public Library card must be presented at time of purchase to receive the offer.
