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, and find their voice.
At the Atlantic City Free Public Library, patrons of all ages can find a variety of educational resources and activities available at the Main Library and Richmond Branch Library, and online.
This year, Tony Award-winning performer Idina Menzel (Frozen, Wicked) and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel are serving as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month.
They are excited to remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want us to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology and educational programming.
