A Wynk, a Blynk, and a Nod to Books about the Library
“Gotta Love Libraries!”
A Wynk, a Blynk and a Nod to Books about the Library
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month – a time when the American Library Association and libraries across the country remind parents that the most important school supply of all is a library card. This fall Snoopy comes to the big screen in The Peanuts Movie, and in September he serves as Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month. In support of this national campaign, we decided to feature some of our favorite books, both new and old, about libraries and the treasures within.
