Its almost back to school time .. time to buy new shoes, stock up on school supplies, check out the bus schedule AND get your library card renewed. Its time again for the Every Kid a Card campaign

Kids who get a new card or renew an existing card get great stuff ( swim pass, Senators card, backpack tag) and can enter a draw for great prizes.

And while we are preparing for back to school.. here are some fun new books to share with soon to be  students.
