September 2021 is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

A Library Card is Your Superpower!

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. It’s a great time to get a library card, or extend an expiring card.

CLPL is offering incentives to people who obtain library cards during the month of September

  • The first 100 people who sign up for a library card in September will receive a small welcome gift, and their name will be entered into a drawing for gift certificate prizes to local businesses.
  • Know a friend who doesn’t have a library card? If you refer a friend to get a library card, you AND your friend will be entered into the Library Card Sign-Up Month drawing for gift card prizes!
