September is Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month! For students heading back to school, a library card can be one of their most valuable resources for the upcoming year, and every year after.

Having a library card allows students to access more than 2 million items in our state’s libraries’ collections. If our library does not own a particular item that the student needs, it can be requested from another library in our consortium of 11 libraries or anywhere in the state.

Reasons to Have a Library Card:

  • Books, in many formats including large print, digital, and audio for your devices.
  • Movies on DVD and streaming digital for all ages -— free entertainment!
  • Video games! Music!
  • Classes and special events for every member of your family.
  • Online classes through Universal Class, Mango Languages, and Creativebug, free with your library card.
  • Free and discounted passes for museums and natural areas, including NH State parks, thanks to our Friends group.
  • Newspapers and magazines, some in a digital format.
  • High quality subscription databases free for cardholders, great for homework help, genealogical research, or other skill!
  • Request your own materials with our cutting edge library system.
  • Children who use the library (and read DAILY!) perform better in school.
  • Lifelong learning for all, regardless of age, gender, or financial ability.
  • The return on your investment in the Library is HUGE when used!
