Winners Announced for Library Card Sign-Up Month Drawing


September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when The Public Library of Youngstown & Mahoning County (PLYMC) joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning.

This year, DC’s Wonder Woman is embarking on a mission to champion the power of a library card as Library Card Sign-up Month Honorary Chair. In her new role, Wonder Woman will promote the value of libraries and encourage everyone to get their very own library card. The theme is “Libraries Are Wonderful!”

You can sign up for a library card in any library branch or on our website.
