Library Card Drive

As part of Read Across America Week we like to provide the opportunity for students without Wake County library cards to apply to receive one. Our local library is a great resource for your child and we want to encourage you to use it! The application has been provided electronically in the links below. If you need a paper copy, please let your child's teacher know and one will be provided. Please fill out and return to your child's teacher by February 27th. We will take care of the rest! Your child should receive their library card within a few weeks after the due date.


Optional At-Home Activities

* Read nightly with your child. Choose a favorite author to introduce them to!
* Explore online reading resources.
