September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month

Libraries across Cuyahoga County are celebrating National Library Card Sign-Up month (September 1-30) with A Card for Every Kid Challenge which aims to put a library card into the hands of every child under 18 in Cuyahoga County.

You can celebrate in two ways:

1. Get your child a new library card. It’s easy: just visit your local library!

2. If your child already has a card but has fines, bring your child to your library to have those fines forgiven.

*Fine forgiveness is a one-time benefit of the campaign.

Visit your community library beginning September 1 to ensure that every child in Cuyahoga County has a library card.

Visit Euclid Public Library, Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library, Cleveland Public Library, Cuyahoga County Public Library, East Cleveland Public Library, Lakewood Public Library, Rocky River Public Library, Shaker Heights Public Library, and Westlake Porter Public Library anytime during National Library Card Sign Up Month to register for a library card or to receive a one-time waiver of fines and fees.

The East Cleveland Public Library's Teen Department houses materials selected for teens which includes books, CD’s, DVD’s, games and magazines. The Teen department has several computers that the teens use to stay connected with current technology.  The Department seeks to provide educationally sound programs that engage the interest of our youth.
