September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month. With the theme “We Still Believe in Libraries,” Irving Library wants residents and regular city visitors to discover (or rediscover) the perks of membership. A library card unlocks a treasure trove of materials in print, audio, visual and electronic formats, all for free. Then there’s also Internet access, cheap printing services, study rooms and even library volunteer opportunities that come as part of the package.
The first time an Irving resident signs up for a public library card, it is free. Replacement cards are $2.
Out of town visitors can purchase a card at low prices compared to other nearby cities. Tell your family and friends, anyone who still believes that libraries are a life transforming force, they can sign up or renew their membership at one of the Irving libraries, or find us at an outreach event, such as Irving Main Street Fest, in September.
They will receive a specialty card featuring the We Still Believe in Libraries logo on a deep purple background.
