Library Card Sign Up Month

September is Library Card Sign Up Month!

Join Webster County Library in celebrating Library Card Sign Up Month. The American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide will join together to remind parents, caregivers and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Adults 17 and older may obtain a new library card with a valid photo ID and proof of current address. Children ages 5-16 years old must have a parent or guardian with a library card in good standing to get their own card. The process takes only a few minutes, and your library card can open up a world of resources for you.

Patrons who might have let their library card “expire” may also stop in this month to renew their accounts. It is easy to renew your account, just present your library card, answer a few questions and you are good to go. If you do not have your physical library card anymore, just show us your photo id and pay a $2.00 fee to get a new one.

To make the process even more fun, each new card holder or patron that renews an expired account will have the chance to spin the prize wheel for a small gift.  To track progress on their goal of 100 new library cards a book page wreath will be created all month long with one book page leaf added per new card.

We want to remind everyone that signing up for a library card opens a world of possibilities: libraries offer resources and services that help people pursue their passions and give students the tools to succeed in school and beyond.
