Library Card Sign Up Month: Home


September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! 

Get in Your Element this September, and sign up for a library card! From borrowing books, board games, and museum passes to learning new skills, a library card helps you do more of what you enjoy.

A library card is your ticket to lifelong learning — it's elemental, really — and everyone should have one! Do you have friends or neighbors who don't have a library card? Invite them to sign up during September.

How to get a Library Card

Thank you to Disney and Pixar for allowing Elemental characters Ember and Wade to help spread the word about the value of a library card during Library Card Sign-up Month 2023.

Disney and Pixar’s Elemental, in theaters now, is an all-new, original feature film set in Element City, where fire-, water-, land- and air residents live together. The story introduces Ember, a tough, quick-witted and fiery young woman, whose friendship with a fun, sappy, go-with-the-flow guy named Wade challenges her beliefs about the world they live in. Elemental is directed by Peter Sohn, produced by Denise Ream and features the voices of Leah Lewis, Mamoudou Athie.
