It's a great time to get a library card! This year's National Library Card Sign-Up Month is extra special in Cuyahoga County. WPPL is joining forces with the eight other library systems in the county to promote "A Card for Every Kid."
How Does It Work?
Kids in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 12 (18-years or younger) are encouraged to visit WPPL in September to apply for a library card and/or have fines on an existing card forgiven. Those who do will also receive a tote bag and a scented pencil to take home!
