Help your kindergartner succeed in school with a library card

Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your kindergartner’s academic success is by making a trip to the library. There’s no better time than September, which is Library Card Sign-up Month, a month in which Westlake Porter Public Library joins with public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most import school supply of all – a library card. With that in mind, the library is offering special prizes to encourage parents to get their kindergartners library cards, and informing customers of all the ways they can use their library cards.

Under the library’s Get Your Kindergartner a Library Card program, kindergartners whose parents get them signed up for a WPPL library card during September and show that card to a member of the Youth Services staff will be able to choose a reward. Kindergartners who already have library cards will also be eligible for rewards. Prizes will ONLY be available in September.

In addition to the kindergarten program, the library is celebrating Library Card Sign-up Month with its “30 Days/30 Ways to Use Your Library” effort. Each day of the month the library will share a different way to use your library card at Westlake Porter Public Library via social media and in-house signage. To find out about the myriad educational – and fun – things you can access with your library card, follow the library on Twitter (WestlakePorter) or Facebook (WestlakePorterPublicLibrary).

Don’t have a library card? For more information on how to sign up for one, visit Westlake Porter Public Library in person at 27333 Center Ridge Road or visit the library online at
