September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

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!

Update 9/23/22: We are out of mugs!
The first 100 people who sign up for a library card in September will receive a free CLPL mug, and their name will be entered into a drawing for gift certificate prizes to local businesses.
