We know YOU have a library card because you’re reading this. Do you know someone who DOES NOT have a library card or someone who just moved into the area and needs one? Help us spread the word and get everyone carrying the only card that really matters!


Here are the facts about having a library card:

  • It’s FREE
  • It allows you to download FREE audio and e-books and magazines from home and in the library
  • It gets you FREE access to information you can TRUST from home and in the library
  • For FREE, you can borrow books, movies, music, nooks, museum passes, magazines, game software, and more
  • You can talk to a reference librarian 24/7 (Ask Here PA)
  • You can request or place holds on library material for FREE from home
  • It's FREE!

What could be better? You have a great library and great library staff. You can come and stay as long as you like. Bring a friend, bring the kids, bring your favorite person, bring your lunch. Don’t keep this a secret. SPREAD the WORD FREELY!

Studies show that children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school. And students can turn to the library for materials, programs, and knowledgeable library staff that support academic achievement.
