There is nothing more empowering than getting your own library card. It gives you access to technology, resources, and services to pursue your passions and dreams. September is Library Card Sign-up Month! Celebrate by getting your own free library card. You may apply for a library card in person at the Main Library in Coshocton, the West Lafayette Branch, or on the Bookmobile. A photo ID and proof of current address are needed. To access digital resources, apply online for an e-card.
This Library Card Sign-up Month, we're asking everyone to help spread some library love by posting to social media about how the library empowers you for a chance to win. Here's how it works:
Post to Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #LibrariesEmpower. Entries can also be submitted by posting as a comment or wall post on the I Love Libraries Facebook page. Don't forget to tag your library! The creator of one randomly-selected post will receive a $100 Visa gift and an ALA Graphics The Child Poster. Additionally, three second-place winners will receive an ALA Graphics The Child Poster.
The #LibrariesEmpower promotion begins Wednesday, September 1, at noon CT and ends Wednesday, September 22, at noon CT. All librarians and library lovers are encouraged to participate. The promotion is open to residents of the United States, Washington, D.C., and U.S. Territories. Employees of the American Library Association are not eligible to participate.
