September is Library Card sign-up month across the country. At Iowa City Public Library we make it easy to get a Library Card. Online sign-up is available to everyone on the Library’s webpage at icpl.org/cards. Once registered, head into the Library with a picture ID and proof of your current address. Staff at the Help Desk will set-up your account, help you set-up a password if needed, and then you are set.
Community members who already have Library Cards may receive a free replacement card all month. If you have your card number memorized, but your card is damaged, we can make a free replacement card with the same number – we’ll just need the original card to create the new card.
We live in a community that loves its Library and the numbers prove it. At the end of Fiscal Year 2015 (June 30, 2015) the Library had 64,957 active cardholders who borrowed 1,391,482 items. That makes ICPL the busiest library building in the state of Iowa. Some other libraries have higher circulation, but their services are delivered in multiple buildings.
Please join your friends and neighbors and be Cooler than Cool. Make sure you have a Library Card. See you at the Library!
