What is National Library Card Signup Month?

National Library Card Signup Month is every September, when libraries across the country bring attention to all of the services and items you can access when you have your library card.

 

Why should I get my library card?

Having your library card gives you access to over 180,000 books, movies, TV series, music CDs, audiobooks, and eBooks. In addition to that, you also can access programs and workshops for all ages on a wide variety of subjects, online resources, borrow books from other library systems, and enjoy free access to websites that normally cost a fee (like Ancestry). You can also rent our meeting rooms and study rooms, use our public access computers, and get one-on-one help with technology from our librarians.

And if you live in the city or Township of Huntington, or the city of Markle, you get all of this at no extra cost*.

 

What discounts will I get in September for showing my library card?

Many local organizations have come together to show their support for the importance of having your library card by offering you a discount throughout the month of September. Simply show them your library card when you arrive at the following locations to get the discounts listed below.
