As kids of all ages head back to school this coming September, Cambridge Public Library encourage kids to sign up for the most important school supply of all — a library card — and meet Sherlock the Fox, East Central Regional Library’s new mascot at the same time.
Sherlock will be at the Cambridge Public Library at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26. There will be a short program followed by an autograph and picture taking session with Sherlock. You can also enter a drawing to have a photo of you, your ECRL card and Sherlock posted on the American Library Association website. Kids of all ages are welcome to attend.
When it comes to achieving academic success, a library card provides kids and students with access to a world of both print and electronic resources.
So it’s easy to see why 91 percent of Americans agree that the public library is important to education and that almost 75 percent of Americans already have a card. Did you know that there are more public libraries than McDonald’s in the U.S.?
East Central Regional Library’s mission is connecting and strengthening communities through the power of knowledge and a library is an essential tool for inspiring a passion for learning. What better place is there to explore and develop new interests than the library?
Open the door to the world of possibilities, sign up for a library card and meet Sherlock the Fox, ECRL’s new mascot at the Cambridge Public Library. The event is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
