Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister author and educator Cara Mentzel will serve as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month 2022.

As honorary chairs, Idina and Cara will remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. And during Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want you to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology, and educational programming.

“It’s a little card that goes a loud way. Let your imagination sing at the library.” — Idina Menzel

“The library is where your imagination sings. Get your library card and ‘check it out’ today.” — Cara Mentzel

This September, join Idina and Cara, the American Library Association, and libraries nationwide in singing the praises of a library card.

The Claiborne County Public Library is excited to announce that we have been awared the Dollar General Literacy Foundation Grant to support our 2021 summer reading program, “Tails & Tales”. This local grant is part of the Dollar General Literacy Foundation’s recent award of $10.5 million donation to support summer, family, and adult literacy programs, representing the organization’s largest one-day grand donation in its 28-year history.

The Foundation supports organizations that increase access to educational programming, stimulate and enable innovation in the delivery of educational instruction and inspire a love of reading. Each year, the Dollar General Foundation awards funds to nonprofit organizations, schools, and libraries within a 15-mile radius of a Dollar General store or distribution center to support adult, family, summer, and youth literacy programs. The Foundation also offers a student referral program for individuals interested in learning how to read, speak English, or prepare for the high school equivalency exam. Referrals to a local organization that provides free literacy services are available online or through referral cards found in the Learn to Read brochures that are available at the cash register of every Dollar General Store.

We truly appreciate all the support from Dollar General!
