Library Card Sign-Up Month
This September, Encourage Friends & Family to Get a Library Card!
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when libraries across the country join together with the American Library Association to remind parents, caregivers, and students that the most important school supply of all is a library card. It’s also a perfect time to share with a friend how easy it is to sign up, and the superpowers an LA County Library card provides!
One card gives you access to 85 community libraries worth of free materials, including books, CDs, DVDs, and more. Just place a hold on an item in our catalog, and have it delivered to your local library location. Or, come visit in person—our staff are always happy to help you find the right fit.
You can also use your card to access all our online resources, 24/7, on any device. This includes:
- Online classes—in anything from accounting to photography—from Lynda.com, Gale Courses, Tutor.com, Mango Languages, and more. A great way learners of all ages to pick up a new skill!
- Databases & Online Resources—a great way to learn about anything from family history to auto repair to legal resources.
- And of course there’s our digital collection of eBooks, audiobooks, magazines, music, and movies and TV from OverDrive, Libby, Hoopla, RBDigital, Kanopy, and more. You can read, watch and listen on any device!
And we haven’t even mentioned all of our programs and events! You don’t need a library card to attend them, but be sure to check out our calendar, and encourage friends and family to come along.
So many benefits come with one small card. Share the power of an LA County Library card today!
