Do you have a library card? Get one!


September is Library Card Sign Up Month.  Bossier Parish Libraries join with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that every student has the most important school supply of all, a free library card.    

Every parent wants their child to succeed, and one of the simplest ways you can ensure your child’s academic success is by making a quick trip to the library.

Our resources are available to anyone who has a library card. Students can turn to the library for materials, programs and services that support academic achievement.  For instance we have children’s reading programs, Teen Advisory Board activities, book clubs, and homeschool groups that meet at the libraries. 

VickieHardinStudents can use their library cards from home, too.  Our library offers access to important educational resources, like Tutor.com, Homework LA.org, NoveList Select, TumbleBooks, test prep for SAT, ACT, standardized tests in all 50 states, graduate school entrance tests, civil service, HiSET and much more.    

“Our library provides all types of students a welcoming atmosphere where they can explore, discover and create,” says Library Director Heather McEntee. “Students learn in a variety of ways, thanks to the resources available at the library we can meet the needs of all ages and types of learners. Whether that is through homework help or access to print and e-books, the library has something for everyone, all with a free library card.  It is for these reasons that a library card is most important school supply of all.”
