The Derby Public Library kicks off its Library Card Sign-up Campaign on September 1 with an opportunity for Derby residents to apply for a library card.  Children as young as  3 years old through age 11 along with a responsible caregiver 18 years of age or older are welcome to have their own library card.

While patrons may apply for a card any time throughout the year, September is designated as National Library Card Sign-up Month.  For the second year in a row, Snoopy, the well-known and well-loved beagle, is the national “spokesdog” for this campaign.

The Children’s Room will feature several displays of books and activity sheets along with  a raffle, a dog treat guessing contest and more fun ongoing activities to coincide with Snoopy’s role in this campaign which will conclude  on October. 31.   

Studies have shown that children who are read to in the home and use the library perform better academically in school.   As part of this campaign, the Derby Public Library takes on the challenge of making sure every student in Derby has the most important school supply of all…a free library card! Every student will receive a flyer featuring Snoopy the library card “spokesdog” for the second year in a row with details about the program along with a portion to be completed by a parent or adult caregiver and returned to either their school or the Library.  Everyone who returns a slip indicating they are applying for a library card or already own one will be entered into a drawing for a prize at the Derby Public Library.  Students in kindergarten through 8th grade are eligible to participate.

For further details, please contact the Children’s Room at 203-736-1482 or visit the Library website at www.derbypubliclibrary.org
