Giddy up and get a library card! Celebrate Library Card Sign Up Month with Woody and the gang!

 

Library Card Sign Up Promotion with Woody and Bo Peep from Toy Story 4

How can you celebrate? Let us count the ways...

1. Visit your library.

Head to your library during September to see what's new and take part in the celebration. Do you have friends who don't have library cards? Invite them to the library.

2. Participate in our #GetLibraryCarded Promotion

Showing your library card gets you access to great things all year-round, but during Library Card Sign-up Month it will also get you the chance to win $100.  Help us spread the word about the value of libraries this September by snapping a picture with your library card and posting it to Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #GetLibraryCarded.  You'll be automatically entered in a drawing to win a $100 Visa gift card!  Entries can also be submitted by posting as a comment or wall post on the I Love Libraries Facebook page. For more information, check out the Official rules (PDF)

3. Help spread the word. 

Follow I Love Libraries on Facebook and Twitter and the hashtag #LibraryCardSignUp to join the celebration on social media.


See What We Did This Summer

Mission: Reach for the Stars through Your Summer Reading!

Our mission was to have you start your very own summer reading challenge!

Mission details: Every time you reach your age's reading goal, visit a new star on your mission log! Each time you finish visiting all the stars on two new constellations, come into the library to get a limited edition color-your-own bookmark! If you visit every star by the end of the summer, you'll earn a free book from our bookstore AND a "Universe of Stories" bag.

Logs available for children ages 0-4; 5-9; and 10-12.
