Library Card Sign-Up Month
Irving Public Library wants to remind the community that September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. New technology, exceptional events, modern spaces for meetings and studying are huge draws, but being a library card holder unlocks the special privilege of access to a vast collection of materials in print, audio, visual and electronic formats for free. Cardholders are invited to use the library’s MiY Zone makerspaces and check out unique materials, such as Little STEAMers Backpacks, Vox audio/book combos, Book Gab to Go kits and Playaways. Learners and jobseekers can also find live assistance on one of the library's newest online resources, Brainfuse.
A library card is the first step to lifelong learning and lifelong savings, and the library has the check-out receipts to prove it! Each one details how much money is saved by borrowing books instead of buying them. Cardholders also have the chance to win a gift card by participating in monthly program surveys.
As if that wasn’t enough, get ready to experience a new perk of membership during Library Card Sign-Up Month--discounts and special promotions for showing the Irving library card at participating cafes and restaurants. While taking advantage of the city’s many library services, tap into the stories of neighborhood merchants and show local businesses love, too.
