smartest-cardDid you know that September is National Library Card Signup Month? 

Are you missing a library card?  Or do you need to renew yours?  Stop by the Library and get it taken care of so that you have access to all our books, movies, music, magazines, databases, ebooks and more!  

And getting/renewing a Library card is even easier now!  All you need is a photo ID with your current Elmwood Park address.  That's it! (If your ID does not have your current address, then a second piece of identification will be required.  Click here for more information.)

Get or renew a card in September:

All month we will be having a raffle for new card holders and patrons who renew expiring cards.  Prizes will include gift cards to local restaurants and stores, and a gift basket for kids.  Items will be on display in the 1st floor display case.

Also, on the morning of September 1, we'll kick off 2016's Library Card Signup Month with some coffee and snacks in the main lobby. So stop in, grab a treat, and get your card!

Why have a Library Card?

Having a Library card is a great resource for everyone for either information or entertainment!  With a Library card you have access to:

  • Books & other collections - Check out books, movies, music, magazines, and video games.  We also have Kindles, bike locks, Nintendo DS consoles, and more!

  • Interlibrary Loan - Is what you want checked out?  We can place holds on books and other items that we don’t own.  On average it takes about a week, and it's free.

  • Computers - We have plenty of computers to use, free with your Elmwood Park Public Library card.

  • Online Resources for Research & Learning - Get online tutoring.  Find full-text articles.  Learn a new language.  Find recommended reading.  Research your family tree.  We have a wide variety of online resources on our website that you can use with your Elmwood Park Public Library card.
