September is Library Card Sing up Month



Snoopy, the world-famous beagle has been known as The Flying Ace, The Masked Marvel, Man’s Best Friend, and the Literary Ace, among other personas; this fall he makes his star turn when he comes to the big screen in The Peanuts Movie from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios.  In September, he’s especially proud to serve as Honorary Chair of Library Card Sign-up Month.

Peanuts is syndicated in over 2000 newspapers worldwide, and is translated into 21 languages. Celebrating 65 years of making us laugh, Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the whole Peanuts Gang can be found in publications from Simon and Schuster, Abrams Comic Arts, Running Press, Andrews McMeel, and more.

Please note: Snoopy is a heavily licensed character. It’s important to the Schulz family to maintain the integrity of Charles Schulz’s vision for the characters. We have licensing rights only for the items featured below and products available from ALA Graphics.

Library Card Sign-up Month is made possible with support from:
