librarycardsignupSeptember is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Atlantic City Free Public Library joins the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind everyone about the valuable resources available with a library card.

From borrowing books, ebooks, and audiobooks to getting homework help, learning new job, computer and language skills, or attending a book club or story time, a library card helps everyone do more of what they enjoy. All without stretching their budget.

There’s something for everyone at the Atlantic City Free Public Library, and signing up for a library card is the first step on the path to academic achievement and lifelong learning for students. It's elemental, really — everyone should have one!

Our library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community.

Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries work together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card.
