Kent Memorial Library will participate in Library Card Sign Up Month in September.

Library card month was launched in 1987 to meet the challenge of Secretary of Education William J. Bennett, who said: "Let's have a national campaign ... every child should obtain a library card -- and use it."

Since then, thousands of public and school libraries join each fall in a national effort to ensure every child does just that.

For information, visit the Main Street library or call 860-927-3761.
