They sure do. Check it out. Some two thirds of Americans have a library card. The American Library Association calls it "the most important school supply of all." September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. In most cases, borrowing privileges start as soon as you sign up for a card in your neighborhood library. And libraries aren't just about books: most also loan audio- and videotapes, computer software, DVDs, CDs, toys, games and puzzles. This year's library card campaign spokesperson is NBA champion and Olympic gold medalist Dwayne Wade.
"The library is the temple of learning, and learning has liberated more people than all the wars in history." — Carl T. Rowan
