Celebrate National Library Card Sign-Up Month
September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month. Held each year, this month serves as a reminder to parents, caregivers, and students that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.
The Colleyville Public Library is encouraging everyone to participate in National Library Card Sign-Up Month by offering those who participate, a chance to win fabulous prizes.
Library Card Drawing
The first opportunity to win a prize is by signing up for your own library card. To enter, a person must do one of the following:
- Sign up for a new card
- Renew a library card
- Show the library your already-owned card
- Check out a book, CD, audiobook, or DVD
By participating in one of these ways, you will be entered into the drawing for a chance to win an Amazon Kindle Fire HD or an Amazon Fire 7 Kid’s Edition Tablet. This drawing is one entry per participant.
Library Check Out Drawing
Not only do we encourage everyone to get their own library card, we also want to encourage everyone to use it! During the month of September, participants will be receive an entry for every 5 items they checkout at the library. The prizes for this drawing include a variety of Toy Story prizes, Legos, or a $25 gift card from various restaurants in the area. Each prize has a separate drawing. Because of this, a participant can enter into multiple drawings if they have multiple entries, or put multiple entries into a single drawing.
The drawings will be held on October 1, so head on over to the Colleyville Library, get a library card, and start checking out!
