September is Library Card Sign Up Month
As students prepare to head back to school, there is one essential school supply that requires no shopping and doesn’t cost a penny – it’s a library card! The library isn’t just a place to check out the latest bestseller, but rather a place that meets a variety of needs, for everyone, in the community.
While you’re at the library in September be sure to make sure your card is up-to-date. Does the library have a correct phone number, address, and email for you? Ask at the Circulation Desk when you check out to make sure we have your valid contact information. The library will send you late notices and hold notifications via email or text message if you opt into the program.
Children who obtain a new library card during the month of September will receive a sticker to claim a small prize in the Children’s Library at Crown Point or at the public desk at the Winfield Branch.
This year’s honorary chairs, Disney’s Incredibles, are helping to promote the value of a library card. During the month of September, the Library will have a limited number of special edition 2018 Incredibles Library Card to distribute on a first-come, first served basis.
Anyone can qualify for this limited edition library card (while supplies last). To apply for a library card, or if your card is lost or has expired, please visit either library
