BEAVERTON, Ore. – September is Library Card Sign-up Month at Beaverton City Library Main and the Murray Scholls branch. In September, the American Library Association reminds everyone that a library card is the perfect back-to-school supply item available to anyone.
Beaverton City Library reaffirms that public libraries welcome and serve every member of our community. We are a refuge and a place for common ground. As the American Library Association President, Julie Todaro, wrote, “Our nation’s libraries serve all community members, including people of color, immigrants, people with disabilities, and the most vulnerable in our communities, offering services and educational resources that transform communities, open minds and promote inclusion and diversity.”
This year, Beaverton Welcoming Week will be celebrated September 15 to 24. Welcoming Week is an annual series of events in which communities bring together immigrants, refugees and U.S. born residents to raise awareness of the benefits of welcoming everyone. In Beaverton, we serve a diverse community that loves libraries and loves the great variety of resources we provide to anyone with a library card. In September, we’d like you to share that love with us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Post a picture of you with your library card or share why you feel your library card is the most important one in your wallet.
