Redford Resource
Local Business Partnership
September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when the Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to make sure that everyone has the most important card in their wallet–a free library card!

In celebration of Library Card Sign-Up Month, we are partnering with 10 local businesses during the entire month of September. Businesses from all over Redford are offering discounts to customers who present their library card!

Discounts and promotional codes will be valid between Wednesday, September 1st, and Thursday, September 30th.
