Libraries Transform: A Card for Every Kid

Image reads A Card for Every Kid ConnectED Library ChallengeSeptember is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, which means it's a great time to get a library card! This year it’s even better, because WPPL, along with the eight other library systems in Cuyahoga County is participating in a cooperative program called "A Card for Every Kid."

Because a library card provides access to so many different types of information and materials… Libraries Transform.
