To mark the beginning of the school year, the month of September is a great time to sign up for a library card. In a national effort to ensure that every child signs up for their own library card, the American Library Association, and libraries encourage those without library cards to sign up for one.  

What can you do with a library card?  

Libraries are known for having a variety of books to borrow and read. However, there are other ways that you can use your library card. A library card also provides you with free access to other resources such as learning kits, movies, online databases, access to library computers and Wi-Fi, study rooms and so much more. A library card is an essential tool to access resources, and it does not cost to sign up.  

How to sign up for a library card? 

If you do not already have a library card, there are several ways that you can sign up. Sign up for a Chicago Public Library card to celebrate National Library Card Month.
