Most Important Library Card

school supplies for children

STEUBENVILLE — With kids back in the classroom, the Steubenville and Jefferson County Public Library suggests they have the most important school supply — a library card.

September is Library Card Signup Month, a reminder to use a library card to connect to trusted resources, services, and programs for all ages available through the library system.

Since 1987, Library Card Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite in a national effort to make sure kids sign up for their own library card.

“During the month of September, present your PLSJ card at McDonald’s in Steubenville, Toronto or Wintersville and get a free small coffee, a small soft drink, a small fries or an ice cream cone. noted a library spokesperson. This offer is redeemable for one item per card, per day

Also in September, the library offers a one-time fine of $5 on a person’s library account.

A variety of programs are provided at library branches for adults, children and in the community. Visit the library in person or online for a listing of events at
