September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when libraries nationwide join the American Library Association (ALA) to remind everyone about the valuable resources available with a library card.
A library card helps everyone do more of what they enjoy without stretching their budget. At the Centerville Public Library, your library card allows you to use a library computer, as well as to borrow books, ebooks, movies, audiobooks, magazines, activity kits, and even internet hot spots! The library also offers children a small gift upon receiving their first library card.
To celebrate all things library cards, the Centerville Public Library is offering a couple special incentives during the month of September. Anyone who applies for a library card, or comes in to update their existing card this month, will be entered into a drawing for a $10 Amazon gift card! We are also temporarily waiving the $2.00 replacement fee for lost cards during September. So make sure to stop in!
Please check our “Get a Library Card” page before you visit so you know what information to bring with you when applying for or renewing a library card.
There’s something for everyone at the Centerville-Center Township Public Library, and signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning for students. It’s elemental, really—everyone should have one!
