AFPLS Celebrates Library Card Sign Up Month! The value of today’s libraries goes beyond books. Librarians are leaders in their communities – helping people of any age to find what they need to help improve their quality of life. This September, Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is joining with the American Library Association and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-up Month, an initiative to make sure that every resident has the most important card of all – a free library card. Libraries build a foundation for children’s future success starting from the earliest stages of development. Librarians play a key role in helping children develop the basic tools for school readiness by teaching families the components of early literacy. As of 2010, children’s programs accounted for nearly two thirds of library programming in the United States, with more than 2.3 million children’s programs nationwide. Older students can also find tools for success at their local libraries, where they can access high-speed internet and digital tools, as well as working with trained professionals on how best to use these resources. As new technologies evolve, libraries continue to lead the way in providing equity of access to digital tools and media, which has become increasingly important in highpoverty areas where students are less likely to have a computer or internet service at home. Close to 90 percent of libraries offer digital literacy training to help residents of all ages navigate today’s changing world. Resources at the AFPLS are available to anyone with a library card. Library Patrons can turn to the library for materials, programs and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement. Throughout September, the library will host several activities (see program list below), for residents of all ages. For more information about how to sign up for a library card, visit in person or online at www.afpls.org.

LETTER FROM THE

DIRECTOR

“Be cautious and bold.” -P.T. Barnum Redesigning a library system in the 21st Century is a tricky proposition. There is no roadmap. Libraries all over the country are working to redefine themselves. Many are morphing into multi-use service organizations focused on helping people.

Dr. Gabriel Morley

The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System is among those charting a path to the future that is centered around helping people in a variety of ways. As we work to renovate the physical spaces of every branch in Fulton County, we are also working to expand our service-level. For example, we recently hired two outreach librarians who have begun investigating ways the library can make an impact on the communities we serve outside our four walls. In upcoming months, you are going to hear much more about these two dynamic librarians and the exciting work they are doing throughout the city and county. Helping people has always been at the forefront of the library’s mission. As the definition of literacy expands so too does the library’s role as a vehicle for lifelong learning. We are now moving into areas such as digital literacy, financial literacy, workforce literacy and health literacy – all vital to the continued success of Atlanta and Fulton County. We are also studying some social issues such as food deserts and homelessness in an effort to determine how the library can affect positive change in these areas. The 21st Century promises to be one of constant change and innovation. The Atlanta-Fulton Public Library stands ready to do its part to meet those persistent challenges. Peace wins Gabe

THE LIBRARY FOUNDATION WELCOMES NEW BOARD MEMBERS: Luisa F. Cardona, Deputy Director of the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs My first memories of a library coincide with my first memories as a new American. My family had just moved to the United States from Colombia and my mami would take us to the library every week. At the library, my brother and I would get to enjoy story time, check out books, and play on the computers while my mami found the resources she needed to navigate and thrive in a new country. The library always makes me think of family, fun, and empowerment because of the tools and resources that it provides. I’m honored to be a part of the Library Foundation Board and look forward to helping our programs and services reach families just like mine. J. DeLano Ford, Executive Director, Teach For America, Metro Atlanta Community public libraries were the source of my life-long love of reading and books. The public library is a staple in my community then and now. I amexcited to work alongside so many leaders and lovers of Atlanta to work toward the continued evolution and credibility of our public library system. AUG/SEP 2017
