National Library Card Sign-Up Month
The Burlington Public Library is celebrating National Library Card Sign-Up Month with special incentives to get a card, a free replacement card for current account holders, and some extra perks for having a card.
Anyone with a Burlington Public Library card, new or old, can receive special savings perks at participating businesses by showing their card in the months of September and October. To see a list of participating businesses and the deals that they are offering, stop by the library at 210 Court Street or stop by one of the participating businesses: Art Center, Beancounter, Burlington By The Book, Capitol Theater, Footnotes, and Natural Inspirations,
Anyone signing up for a new card during the month of September also will receive a gift and be entered into a drawing for gift certificates.
Residents who do not already have a library card can visit the Burlington Public Library at 210 Court Street to show their current identification card and fill out a short form. Applicants under 18 years of age need to bring a parent or guardian to sign their registration form. Call 319-753-1647 if you have questions about eligibility.
For current library card holders, the usual replacement card fee is being waived for the month of September. “If you lost your card or have a card worn out from years of use, stop by the library to get a new card at no cost,” invites Burlington Public Library Director Rhonda Frevert
“Anytime is a good time to get a library card,” says Frevert. “With school starting back up, September is a great time to remember how valuable a library card is for learners of all ages.”
A Burlington Public Library card allows you to borrow books, music, movies, and more. It also gives you access to the online resources on the library’s web site which include 24/7 access to articles from hundreds of magazines, downloadable audiobooks, books, and magazines, streaming and downloadable music, tools for researching your family history, and free one-on-one online tutoring.
