Prescott Public Library September 2021

Library Card Sign-up Month at Prescott Public Library

There’s nothing more empowering than a library card. Through access to technology, online resources, and educational programs, libraries provide people of all ages the opportunity to pursue their dreams and passions.

September is National Library Card Sign-up Month. Since reopening in March 2021, the library has registered an average of 300 new users each month and the library is looking forward to breaking monthly registration records in September! Library services are free and available to all residents. Our goal is to make sure everyone in Prescott, no matter their age, has a library card.

To celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month, the library will have library cards with a new look in keychain and wallet sizes. Thanks to the Friends of the Prescott Public Library, there are also incentives for you to come in and get a card!

  • The first 150 people to register for a card will get more cards: a deck of Prescott Public Library playing cards.
  • Bring a friend or family member in to get their card and you’ll get a Friends of the Prescott Public Library book bag.
  • Library staff will have some surprise celebrations planned for children who register.
  • We’ll have a fun photo booth that will allow you to “smize” (smile with your eyes).How do you get a card? It’s simple.
  • Check out details and online application here: https://www.prescottlibrary.info/services/library-cards-accounts/library-cards/
  • Visit the Check Out Desk on the 2nd floor of the library with a photo ID and proof of Yavapai County residency.
  • A parent or guardian needs to accompany anyone under 16 to get a card. Even babies can have their own card!
  • Call 928-777-1524 for more information.This year’s spokesperson for the American Library Association’s National Library Card Sign-up Month is author Marley Dias, and she wants you to know, “A library card provides opportunity for discovery and access to a rich and diverse world. It empowers you to make change and experience new stories.”
