September is Library Card Sign-up Month, when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning. It also is the bedrock of the Adams County Library’s mission of opening gateways of exploration by connecting people with opportunities to enrich their lives.

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, book and 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.

Brandt A. Ensor is the assistant executive director of Adams County Library.
