|Marley Dias is this year's ALA spokesperson for Library Card Sign-Up Month|
A library card may just be the most valuable card you will ever own in your wallet. The resources you can obtain with this one card is almost limitless. Wouldn't you want the same for your children or family members? Just think, with this one free card you can have access to books, materials, computers access, Wi-Fi, and the list goes on.
Let's imagine that a family with limited education resources who suddenly obtains a card for each member. They can visit the library and in "quiet" travel to lands and universes. They can witness battles where good will conquer over evil and life long lessons learned. Maybe your child has a sudden interest on why the sky is blue and the grass is green. The answer is at the library. Yes, Google and other search engines are amazing, but it's more of a challenge and maybe more rewarding to find the answer inside a book.
