NATIONAL LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH
 
It's National Library Card Sign-Up Month and we are celebrating in a few different ways.

First off, if you sign up for a new library card during the month of September you will automatically be entered into a prize-drawing for your choice of either a $25 SmashBurger gift card or a $25 MovieTickets.com gift card. But you have to be signing up for a new card. Renewing a card doesn't count. Sorry. 

Second, if you already have a card, you can refer family and friends to get a new card. Every person you refer who signs up for new library card will earn you an entry for a second prize-drawing for either a $25 SmashBurger gift card or a $25 MovieTickets.com gift card. The more people you refer, the better your chances to win.

Finally, during the month of September we are also waiving the cost of getting a replacement library card. So if you lost your card and have been holding out on getting a replacement, now is the time to get it. 

So help us celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month by getting a bunch of new people signed up. You might just win.
