September is Library Card Sign Up Month

Chief James Black of the Crystal Lake Police Department is the Library Card Sign Up Month Spokesperson for the Crystal Lake Public Library Card Sign Up Month Initiative

Enjoy special incentives with the most valuable card in your wallet during Library Card Sign Up Month. Sign up for, renew, or simply use your CLPL card during the month of September, then visit the following merchants for special deals. Enter a drawing at the Library to win gift certificates at the end of the month.

“In order to be successful in your adult life, it is important that every young person develops academically, socially and personally. Reading opens our mind and our imagination. Having a library card gives access to literally thousands of books, whether they are hard copy or in electronic format, that assist us in our personal and professional development.”
