WOODLAND PARK, NJ - The Alfred Baumann Library has been selected to participate in the “Libraries = Success” program, sponsored by the NJ State Library. 

A joint collaboration between the Library and the Woodland Park School District, this initiative is geared toward encouraging middle school students to sign up for a library card. The initiative runs in September, which is National Library Card Sign-up Month.

While the campaign specifically targets 6th to 8th graders as they embark on the milestone of officially becoming independent learners, the “Libraries = Success” campaign will work to reach all students. Library staff members will be on hand at all three district back to school nights to provide information to parents/guardians and library card sign up applications, and work to strengthen the bridge between the school district and the Library.

A library card provides endless opportunities for students and will save them money while reaping rewards in academic achievement and lifelong learning. Whether it’s providing free access to programs, in-person and virtual homework help or technology workshops, a library card is one of the most cost effective back-to-school supplies. Resources at the Library are available to anyone with a library card.

Promotional giveaway items and marketing materials will be provided to the State to help the Library with the initiative.
