September is Library Card Sign-Up Month
It’s September! Join us in celebrating library card sign-up month. If you don’t already have a library card, visit your local OC Public Libraries branch and fill out an application. It is free to get a card; all you need is a photo ID and proof of your current California address.
Great books aren’t hard to find, but getting them at the library is the most economical method. While libraries are the best place to get books, libraries are for way more than just books. An OC Public Libraries' card gives you access to DVDs , music CDs, musical scores, foreign language collections, current magazines, language learning resources and much more!
Once you have a library card you don’t even need to visit a physical branch, you can access books and materials from the comfort of your home, while on a vacation, or at work! Your library card allows you to check out eBooks and eAudiobooks. It allows you to check out digital copies of magazines through Zinio. It allows you to access our free library research databases and resources. You can place holds on books, renew your materials, or review your account all online.
The library is a place for children, teens, and adults. Your public library is here to grow with you and support you no matter how old you are or what stage of life you are in. Whether you are a young child visiting us for storytime, a teen checking out books for school or an adult interested in our free WiFi and programs, we are here for you! Bookstores and online sources are great, but libraries are unique because we don’t just have the most current books and the most popular titles. We have a great mix of classic literature, current titles, local history, and special collections. We also have staff members who are eager to help you find your next favorite book. Our libraries have flexible hours, many of our branches hours include evenings and weekends. Our eLibrary is open 24/7.
A library card the best bargain in town! Visit your local OC Public Libraries branch and get a card today!
