September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.

Marley Dias, author, executive producer, and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, is joining the American Library Association and libraries nationwide in promoting the power of a library card this September.

Use these resources to encourage people to get library cards, as well as promote the value of your library’s services and resources.

Library Promo Video


GPLS had this video professionally produced to share the many benefits offered by public libraries across Georgia. We encourage you to share this video on social media, via email, and other places to help your community understand what they can do with a library card. 

Here’s the video on YouTube, where you can get the code to embed it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1FuyIjE1B7s

Here is sample text that you can use or modify when you share the video:

“Your local library is the place to go for lifelong learning. Whether you’re working on a school assignment, looking for a new book, or simply want to gain a new skill, your public library has free, easy-to-use resources that you can access in person or online. Free high speed internet keeps people connected to school or work. Your library also offers the fast track to getting hired, with free programs to help you create a resume, search jobs, and learn job skills. Going far beyond curbside service and virtual programming, libraries provide what their communities need, from food to connectivity to entertainment to educational support, all the while striving to keep everyone safe and well. With your free library card, you can access all this and more.
