History

Established September 1987, National Library Card Sign-Up month set forth to put a library card in the hands of every child. This year, the American Library Association has teamed up with honorary chair Marley Dias to promote the power of a library card. Dias is an author, executive producer, and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks.
