September is Library Card Sign up Month.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a time when the Franklin Park Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to promote the benefits of a free library card. Your Franklin Park Library Card is the ticket to a wide variety of materials, programs, services, our Digital Library, and much more.

Circulation Services is offering a plentiful assortment of incentives and prizes during September 2014. It's the perfect time to sign-up for your very first library card or use your current Franklin Park Library Card during the month to enter the raffles. Read all about the awesome giveaways from local businesses and organizations.
