Spread the Word: Get a Library Card

Your card gives you access to free movies, music, books, video games, and more. Tell your family and friends to get in on the action! Every adult who signs up for a card in September receives an emoji magnet (made with our 3-D printer) and a chance to win a $25 gift card to a local restaurant. Kids can choose a fidget toy when they sign up and pose for a picture on the red carpet.

Current cardholders are also welcome to stop by and enter to win a gift card!
