Library Card Signup Month -  September 1 to 30 - To celebrate Library Card Signup Month, we're holding three drawings for $50 to Half Price Books! How do you win? Choose your path below:

  1. Sign up for your very own library card. All ages are eligible.
  2. If you know someone who doesn't have a card, encourage them to come in. Each person you refer is an entry.
  3. Use your library card during the month of September. 

Is your library card well-worn or missing? We'll replace it during the month of September as well, free of charge!
