Everyone knows your library card can get you books as well as DVDs and access to internet resources, but what about a free cookie or discount at your favorite stores? Well, in September, it can!
We will be partnering with local businesses during the entire month of September as a part of our Library Card Sign-Up Month celebration. Businesses from all over Saline County are offering discounts to customers who present their library card.
Library Card Sign-Up Month is a national holiday, but every library celebrates a little differently. We like to use this holiday as a time to get the community involved by contacting businesses to see if they would like to participate. Businesses who participate with the library choose their own discount to offer library card-holders, and in return, those businesses have their name and logo included on various promotional materials such as bookmarks, social media posts and a banner in the front of the library.
Over 50 businesses in Saline County will be offering discounts during the month of September for library card-holders. Discounts include 5%-50% off of a purchase or service, a free item with a meal, a free service or consultation, and more.
Not only do we use this as a time to promote local businesses, we also use it as a time to encourage the community to sign-up for library cards and experience what the library offers.
Of course the library has books and DVDs, but there is more that you may not know about. You can use online resources to learn a new language or get free tutoring. You can check out a cake pan for your child’s birthday party or check out a mobile hotspot so you can get WiFi on a road trip. You can even check out fishing poles and exercise kits. There are many non-traditional items that the library now offers for check out, and it is all free with your library card.
You can sign up for a library card by visiting the Saline County Library and bringing your ID and proof of current address with you. If you do not live in Saline County, bring a pay stub showing that you work here, or a document showing that you attend school here. If you would like to use online resources only, visit the website and fill out an application for an online card.
Citizens of Garland, Grant and Hot Spring County can apply for a Saline County Library card because of a special reciprocal agreement. If you do not live in any of the counties listed above, you can apply for a Saline County Library card by bringing your ID and paying an annual fee of $10.
