Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.  Throughout September, everyone who signs up for a library card or uses the card they already have may enter a drawing for prizes to be awarded at the end of the month.

A library card allows you free access to books, DVDs, magazines, audiobooks, ebooks, state parks, some museums, and more.

You are eligible for a free card from our library if you are at least four years old and live in our service area which includes the city of Milan, Augusta Township, and the parts of York Township and Pittsfied Township that are in Milan Area Schools.  You may also receive a free card if you work full-time in the city of Milan.

If you have a library card from another library that participates in the Michicard program, you may use that card (with a Michicard sticker on it) at our library.

See here for everything you need to know about getting a library card at our library and here for everything you can do with your card.
