September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! Marley Dias, author and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks, is joining the American Library Association and libraries nationwide to promote the importance of having a library card.
Starting September 1, visit the Novi Public Library to participate in our Library Card Sign-Up Month reading challenge! Grab a bookmark from our lobby display. Fill it out as you read or listen to titles with Black female main characters or are written by Black female authors as well as watch movies with Black female lead actresses.
Turn in your completed bookmark by September 30 for a chance to win:
- Kindergarten-Adult (3 winners): $25 gift card to the following businesses - Chick-Fil-A, Nothing Bundt Cakes or Sugah Please Coffee House
- Birth-PreK (1 winner): Basket of goodies featuring picture books - "The Day You Begin" by Jacqueline Woodson and "Ambitious Girl" by Meena Harris.
Guests will also receive an additional entry into the raffle if they have a Novi library card. Don't have a card? Stop by the Circulation Desk to sign up for one today!
