September is that special time of the year when students and teachers return to the classroom. The library is a key partner for families as they navigate homework, tests and research assignments. Euclid Public Library offers a variety of print and online resources to help. This month, libraries throughout our nation will celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month. Children and teens are encouraged to visit the library and sign up for a free card or receive a one-time waiver of their existing fines and fees. A Card for Every Kid is part of the national ConnectED initiative, which launched in spring 2015, calls upon library directors to work with their mayors, school leaders and school librarians, to ensure every student has access to the learning resources and books of America’s libraries.
As students return to the library, we want to remind residents that we offer a variety of programs and services for children and teens. There may be times when it’s a bit louder after school in the library. We want to ensure you that we will address rule violations. Students will be issued a warning and face possible restrictions. We work closely with parents, our local public, and charter schools to educate students and help them learn how to be responsible citizens. In addition to our after school programs, we encourage families to register children and teens for programs at Shore Cultural Center, the Sports Plant, the YMCA, and with the Euclid Recreation Department. Keeping students engaged is a great way to build the character traits that will help them to become successful adults.
