Why A Library Card?

Discover the Benefit of A Library Card

Your "Library Anywhere" Card

The library is more than a building. The library is online too! Read ebooks, use our online research and study tools, or enjoy storytime from the comfort of home. On your phone or on your computer, you can use the library anywhere.

Your "Borrow, Don't Buy" Card

Why buy when you can borrow? With a library card, you get free access to books, movies, magazines, newspapers, study tools, Internet access, board games, and more. It’s the most valuable card in your wallet! 

Flower and veggie seeds, zoo passes, even kayaks…you can borrow so many things from your local library! A library’s mission is to share resources with their communities, whether that means books or board games. Try something new when you borrow with your library card!

Your "Job Search Help" Card

No matter where you are in your job hunt, you can find and use job resources at the library or online with your library card. Many libraries offer resume builders and other tools, and librarians are there to help with forms and paperwork for unemployment, applications, cover letters, and retirement.  

Your "Learn New Skills" Card

Build your skills and learn from home with your library card. Your library has free online classes called Gale Courses that help you learn new skills and live your best life. From grant writing to computer classes, you can take classes at your own pace, online, anytime.

Your "Library On the Go" Card

No matter where you are, you can take the library with you! Get ebooks, digital audiobooks, and digital magazines on your phone or computer. You can even enjoy virtual programs from home!

Your "Stay Connected" Card

Take the Internet home with you when you borrow a free hotspot from the library. You can also visit the library to access WiFi at no charge.
