Danbury Library is celebrating National Library Card Sign Up Month by honoring a part of our community’s history, while also helping young children to gain the confidence necessary to become strong readers.
Help us reach our goal of 200 new card sign-ups during the month of September!
In partnership with The Friends of the Danbury Library, 1000 new children’s books will be distributed to kindergarten and first grade students to help establish strong early literacy skills. Find them on display on the Junior Floor!
“The Friends of the Danbury Library is committed to fostering an early love of books, reading and literacy. Our entire community benefits from book giveaway programs such as this one, because they help promote children’s home literacy environment, resulting in more interest in reading and higher reading scores during early education. We are proud to be supporting this endeavor.” said Dawn Reshen-Doty, Board President of the Friends of the Danbury Library.
Anyone who either signs up for a new library card or renews their existing account during the month of September will automatically be entered to win an Amazon Fire HD Tablet 10 (32GB; 1080p). One lucky winner will be selected on Monday, October 4!
Danbury Library cards are available to all Danbury residents, as well as educators, city employees, and college students. You can even apply online!
