September is Library Card Sign-Up Month at MCPL

August 29, 2018

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month and Montgomery County Public Libraries encourages residents of all ages, who do not have a card, to sign up for one today.  The free library card can be used to borrow materials from all 21 MCPL branches, as well as to access services and resources online 24/7.

   This year, Disney Pixar’s superhero family, the Incredibles are Library Card Sign-up Month honorary chairs, helping to promote the value of a library card and bring attention to the many ways libraries and librarians transform lives and communities through education.

    “A Montgomery County Public Libraries card is one of the best bargains around,” said Anita Vassallo acting director MCPL. “MCPL provides access to an incredible variety of new resources each year, and we want all County residents to have a library card so that everyone can take advantage of all we have to offer.”

    Books continue to be a library mainstay, but today’s libraries are a gateway to a wide- range of other literary activities and services. Library branches have many options such as books and magazines, story times, book clubs and special events and programs. Library cardholders have access to many resources such as video and music streaming, online classes and trainings and downloadable books that can be digitally accessed from outside the branches. 

   Library cards are essential back-to-school supplies for students. Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show children who are read to in the home and who use the library, perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.   For information on how to sign up for a library card, visit any MCPL branch or apply online at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library.
