Celebrate Library Card Sign-Up Month with special offers from local businesses

 

(ROCHESTER, MI – Aug. 26, 2022) September is Library Card Sign-Up Month when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) to remind parents, caregivers, students, and community members that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Libraries play a crucial role in the education and development of children, offering a variety of programs to spark creativity and stimulate an interest in reading and learning. Through access to technology, media resources, and educational programs, a library card gives students the tools to succeed in the classroom and provides people of all ages opportunities to pursue their dreams, explore new passions and interests, expand their imaginations, and find their voice.

At Rochester Hills Public Library (RHPL), patrons of all ages can find a variety of educational resources and activities, including storytimes, STEAM/STEM workshops, book clubs, writing groups, English Language Learner conversations, and more!

“Libraries help children get the school year off to the best possible start and are there for them as they grow,” says library director Juliane Morian. “RHPL has programs and resources to support children and patrons of all ages with a variety of interests – from print books and digital options to hands-on learning with Innovative Items, Eureka Lab workshops, entertaining programs, and more. There is something for everyone at RHPL.”

RHPL has partnered with several downtown Rochester and Rochester area businesses to provide special offers and discounts to RHPL cardholders during the month of September. Simply show your RHPL card when shopping to receive special offers. See below for a full list of participating businesses and offers. 

RHPL continues to adapt and expand services to meet evolving community needs. To sign up for a library card or to learn more about the library’s resources and programs, visit rhpl.org/services/get-library-card.
