PASADENA, CA — September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) in highlighting the valuable resources available with a library card. Libraries play a crucial role in the education and development of children, the cultivation of community connection and the acquisition of information for all.

During September, Pasadena Public Library is celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month with limited-edition bookmarks and stickers, available to the first 1,000 visitors. To get yours, visit the Pasadena Public Library, where books are just the beginning!
