September is Library Card Sign-Up Month! New technology, exceptional events, modern spaces for meetings and studying are huge draws, but being a library card holder unlocks the special privilege of access to a vast collection of materials in print, audio, visual and electronic formats for free. Cardholders are invited to use the library’s MiY Zone makerspaces and check out unique materials, such as Little STEAMers Backpacks, Vox audio/book combos, Book Gab to Go kits and Playaways. Learners and jobseekers can also find life-changing tools with online resources like Brainfuse and LinkedIn Learning.
A library card is the first step to lifelong learning and lifelong savings, and the library has the check-out receipts to prove it! Each one details how much money is saved by borrowing books instead of buying them.
While taking advantage of the city’s many library services, tap into the stories of neighborhood merchants and show local businesses love, too! This year, Irving Public Library is returning with Library 'Heart' Local and teaming up with local restaurants both new and returning who will offer discounts to guests who show their library card while dining. See the list below of participating merchants visit the Library Card Sign-Up Month page for more details on the discounts and freebies available to Irving Public Library cardholders during September.
