The following is a press release issued by the County of Mendocino:
September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when Mendocino County 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 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.
Interested in trying a new hobby? The library can help. Thinking about starting or growing a small business? Want to start a garden? Mendocino County Library offers many resources to help you accomplish your goals: Libby, Hoopla, and Kanopy to stream eBooks, audiobooks, music, and movies; Grant Finder, Small Business Reference Center, Ebsco Learning Express, Legal Information Reference Center to help with your business or career, and VetNow which provides services to veterans. Additionally, the library offers free access to a variety of newspapers such as the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and local papers like the Willits News, Fort Bragg Advocate, UDJ, and Press Democrat. All this and much more is yours free with a library card!
There’s something for everyone at Mendocino County 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!
Mendocino County Library, along with libraries everywhere, continues to adapt and expand services to meet the evolving needs of our community. To sign up for a library card or to learn more about the library’s resources and programs, please visit https://www.mendolibrary.org/home. During September, visit any of the Mendocino County Library branches to get your card and participate in fun activities.
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.
