New York City's New Law Will Get Library Cards to More Students

I just saw this wonderful news: New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg just signed a law that "requires that his city’s Department of Education supply library card applications and information about how to obtain a card to students entering kindergarten, sixth grade, ninth grade, or when transferring into a new school." This "Library Card Act" could put cards into the hands of hundreds of thousands more school-age children.

The article, "NYC Mayor Signs Library Card Act into Law," is on the website of School Library Journal.

Kudos to Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, who introduced the bill that has now become law.
