Program Description

Event Details

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! This year, the American Library Association is partnering with the movie Elemental for the theme of the month. "Get in Your Element this September—sign up for a library card! From borrowing books, ebooks, and museum passes to getting homework help, learning new skills, or attending story time, a library card helps you do more of what you enjoy. Get a library card and dive into a new hobby. A library card is your most important school supply—it's elemental, really—and everyone should have one!"

You'll see that the front display case has been transformed into a Library Periodic Table of Elements. Let us know- which elements do you love about the library? Here's how you can show us: 

  1. Snap a pic or shoot a video showcasing what you love about the library or choose a library element that best applies to you.

  2. Post to Instagram, X, or on the I Love Libraries Facebook page with the hashtag #HowILibrary.

  3. Tag the WDM Public Library and your friends to help spread the word!

What's in it for you? In addition to the gratification of supporting libraries, there’s also a chance to win great prizes. One randomly selected winner will receive a $150 gift card, and three second-place winners will receive a poster of their choice from the ALA Store.
