September is Library Card Sign-up Month. Our library has a variety of resources for school research as well as books and magazines to read for fun, CDs to listen to, and movies to watch. The beginning of a new school year is a good time for you to get a library card and discover the opportunities available at the library.
To celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month, Milan Public Library is offering a prize drawing for receiving and using library cards throughout the month. Entries may be earned for
- signing up for a new card
- renewing an expired card
- checking out items from the library (You may enter once each day you check out items.)
- checking out e-books or e-audiobooks (You may enter here once each day you check out e-books or e-audiobooks.)
- submitting a photograph of your library card for our display
Your library card can take you anywhere (through the books you read and movies you watch). Where have you taken your library card?
The library is creating a display of where our library cards have been. You are invited to take a picture of your library card at the park, at a coffee shop, or anywhere else interesting you have taken your card and submit the photo to the library for the display. Everyone who submits a photo will also receive an entry in the prize drawing. Enter at the library when you submit a photo to the library or here if you email a photo to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. See the photos in the display case at the library and here.
Residents of the city of Milan, Augusta Township, and the parts of York Township and Pittsfield Township that are in Milan Area Schools are eligible for a free library card at Milan Public Library. Additional information about receiving and using a library card is available here.
Milan Public Library participates in the MILibrary Card program, which offers library card holders the opportunity to check out items from other participating libraries in the state. Monroe County Library System also participates, so with a card from either library and a MILibrary Card sticker, individuals may check out items from both libraries.
Although a library card is necessary to check out items from the library, resources at Milan Public Library are available to everyone in our community.
A library card is not required to read or research in the library, use computers, attend programs, and receive assistance from the library staff.
Milan Public Library provides programs for all ages. Fall programming for teens and tweens begins in September and includes Books and Bites for 6th through 8th grade students and a newly formed Teen/Tween Advisory Group. Additional information about youth programs is available through the links above and at www.milanlibrary.org/teens.
