SEPTEMBER IS LIBRARY CARD SIGN-UP MONTH

September 5, 2013

Library Card Sign up

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. During this month, we encourage you to visit the library either in-person or virtually through our website, www.palmspringslibrary.org. Your library card has powers like no other card in your wallet. You can get help with your homework, read journal articles, and get an e-book, e-audiobook, or song online. In person, you can check out DVDs, books, music CDs, and magazines for the entire family. Attend a program, read a book, learn a language online. The possibilities are endless at the Palm Springs Public Library!

In conjunction with Library Card Sign-up Month, we are offering Fine Forgiveness Month. During September, if you have old overdue charges on your account, we will waive up to $50. Fees for lost or damaged items are not applicable, overdue charges accrued in September 2013 are also not applicable. If you have had difficulty with your account in the past, we want to welcome you back with a clean slate. You must come to the library to request a waiver. Others cannot request a waiver for you and you cannot request a waiver over the phone. Come into the library; rediscover the great place that is the Palm Springs Public Library.

New Libary CardDuring the month of September (4th—29th) come to the Palm Springs Public Library and exchange your current Library card for a NEW library card featuring an accompanying key tag. Yes, it’s true, just like the grocery or drug store you can clip this key tag onto your key chain and use it to check out materials when at the Library. How convenient! Plus, as an added bonus, each person who exchanges their current card for the new card and key tag will also receive up to $5.00 in fine ‘forgiveness’ for late or overdue materials. What a deal!

Why buy when you can borrow? If you don’t currently have a Library card, now is the time to get one! The benefits are endless. The Library is a goldmine of free access to the latest DVDs, CDs and best sellers without monthly membership fees or retail prices, plus we offer many adult and youth programs to choose from, and so much more!
Also during the month of September, in addition to the fine forgiveness for exchanging your current library card for a new one, everyone who exchanges their card or signs up for a new card can be entered into weekly drawings for free movie passes, author autographed best sellers and some other fun prizes.
