Back to School at the Edison Public Library

Back to School at the Edison Public Library

As Edison's students head back to school this September, the Edison Public library wants to make sure tht all children have the most important school supply of all-----a library card.

Owning a library card provides students the resources they need to compete academically.  Most public libraries (89.6%) provide students free access to databases of news articles, encyclopedias and test preparation materials, as well as homework help and resources.  In addition, public libraries are the number one access point for free Internet access, an important resource for families without access at home when 96% of school districts require students to use the Internet to complete their homework.

Libraries provide young readers with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun.  It is for these reasons that now more than ever a library card is an important school supply.  Getting a library card is easy.  Just visit any of Edison's three libraries with appropriate identification and receive your librry card in 10 minutes.

For more information on how to sign up for a library card, visit the Edison public library in person or visit the library online at
