Library Card Sign-Up Month 2022

The Pulaski County Public Library currently has 6,233 cardholders, and we have room for more!

September is Library Card Sign-up Month.  Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the American Library Association and libraries unite to spread the word about the availability of library cards.

A library card is the most important card in your wallet. Patrons of the library district can use their cards to access the library’s digital services anytime, anywhere. The library’s digital content includes e-books, audiobooks, databases, magazines, music, and streaming movies. You can visit the library’s website or download apps like Libby, Kanopy, Freegal, and Hoopla to read, listen, and watch on your phone or tablet.  This digital content is available at no charge to resident cardholders.

Library cards are available for kids and adults.  There is no charge for residents of the Pulaski County Public Library district to sign-up for a library card.  To get yours, just come in to the library with proof of ID and residency.  Need a library card and can’t get to the library? You can sign-up for a Pulaski County Public Library card from anywhere in the world using the library’s website. A one-dollar transaction fee applies to the online card application, as we utilize the credit card address to verify residency requirements. Please note that this fee only applies to new accounts created through the library website.

This month, all new library cardholders will get to select a free book to keep, and new adult patrons will receive entry into a drawing for a Bluetooth speaker.

Can’t find your library card, or is it in scruffy condition? This month, the library is offering FREE replacement cards, too.

For more information about how to sign up for a library card, please visit the Pulaski County Public Library at 121 S Riverside Drive or give us call 574-946-3432.
