A free library card is your ticket to back-to-school savings

September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Ida Rupp Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that students have the most import school supply of all, a free library card. Resources at the Ida Rupp Public Library in Port Clinton are available to anyone who has a library card.

Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement. Students can use their library cards from home, too.  The library offers access to important educational resources, like EBSCO Host, Student Research Center, World Book Early World of Learning, True Flix, Freedom Flix, and much more.

“Our library provides all types of students with the tools they need to succeed,” says Deborah Loiacono, Director. “We provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home, all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all.”
