Coming in Just a Few Days: Library Card Sign-Up Month

This announcement from the American Library Association reviews some of the ways libraries are using to get people to register for a library card. Here’s one of several examples:

The Wauconda (Ill.) Area Library Distict partners with local businesses every year to show library users just how valuable a library card can be. Library users can receive discounts at over 60 local business when they show their library card. Services include everything from a round of free bowling at Wauconda Bowl to $500 off closing costs from Re/MAX. Also, during the month of September, libraries users that check out 10 items or more will be entered in a drawing to win gift cards and gift baskets donated by area businesses.
