September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month!  If you do not have a library card from one of your local library branches, we encourage you to stop by one today to sign up!  Getting a library card is FREE and easy – all you need are a picture ID and a document with your current address.  Most people use a driver’s license, although two separate documents will also work.  Children between the ages of 6 and 15 will need a parent or guardian to sign their application.

NERL branches will be taking photographs all month long of people getting their library card so find your local branch under the LIBRARIES tab on our homepage at and come by today.  We especially love to see children getting their first library card, it is a rite of passage for many when they turn 6.  And with children starting school recently, now is a great time to introduce them to the world of reading to jumpstart their love of books.  Library staff work hard every day to find the perfect book for each person who comes into the library.  A world of possibilities is waiting for you to explore at your local library, so stop by today!  (And did we mention that it is FREE?)
