September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel, are this year’s LCSUM honorary chairs. “The library is where your imagination sings. Get your library card and ‘check it out’ today”, says Mentzel. In September, the sisters’ debut picture book, Loud Mouse, will be released. Readers of all ages are encouraged to find their voice at the library by exploring free programming, access to technology, and essential community services.



Celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month with a special reading challenge on Beanstack! Complete activities, earn digital badges, and share your favorite things about the library. Participate by downloading the Beanstack app or visiting us online, earn digital badges, and get rewards for your reading. All ages can participate, so start showing your love for your library card today!
