Library Card Sign-Up Time

School is back in session and there may be an essential school supply you may be missing! Sign-up for your free Buffalo and Erie Public Library card. September and October are Library Card Sign-Up Months. Libraries offer free access to a world of discovery for everyone. This year, Tony Award-winning performer, actress and singer-songwriter Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Menzel are the national honorary chairs of library card sign-up month, reminding the public that “the library is where your imagination sings.”

Storytimes, MakerSpace, and Do It Yourself programs spark creativity and STEM/teen learning activities inspire young adults to find community and build leadership skills. Your 37 local libraries also offer Chromebook and hotspot lending and electronic resources like popular databases, learning guides, practice tests, educational digital books, and 24/7 streaming services.

Applicants under the age of 17 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian with valid ID when applying for a library card. For more information and to apply, click here.
