September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Marshalltown Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that our students have the most import school supply of all - a free library card.
Resources at the Marshalltown Public Library are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement.
Students can use their library cards from home, too. The library offers access to important educational resources, like Learning Express Library, which provides tutorials for learning from elementary school through adulthood as well as test preparation for tests like the ACT, PSAT, Advanced Placement exams and more.
"Our library provides all types of students with the tools they need to succeed," Reference Librarian Katie Fink said. "We provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home - all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all."
For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Marshalltown Public Library in person or call the Check-Out Desk at 641-754-5738 ext. 2.
