Library Card Sign-Up MonthDo you know what you can borrow with a library card? Internet access, audiobooks, streaming digital content, binge boxes and more! The Monticello-Union Township Public Library has a diverse collection of items to read, listen, and watch. Enjoy borrowing these items without worrying about late fees. Since June, the library has been fine free on all materials except hotspots. By eliminating the overdue fine, we want to encourage patrons to visit the library and delight in all your library card provides.
For those who enjoy digital content, we offer the applications Libby, Hoopla and Kanopy. If you need Internet access, there are hotspots to borrow with your library card!
September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, a nationwide library campaign to show the importance of a library card and how it opens opportunities for all ages to pursue their dreams, explore new passions and interests, and find their own voice.
Throughout September, we will have activities and programs to celebrate. Join us on Saturday, September 10 from 2 – 4 pm on the library’s south lawn for a Community Picnic. We will have all kinds of games for the whole family to enjoy from Cornhole to Connect4. Bring your own lunch/snacks or you enjoy a delicious pulled pork sandwich sponsored by Faith Covenant Fellowship. Musician Malachi Jaggers will be performing on the patio!
The children’s room will have their claw arcade machine available during September. Children who sign up for a new library card or check out 3 or more items can have an attempt at using the claw arcade machine.
