There’s never a wrong time to sign up for a library card, but September is a special time for libraries across the United States to highlight why getting a library card is such a great idea! Check out our top 4 reasons for signing up for a library card today:
|You don’t have to take my word for it… Just ask Arthur and his pals.|
1. Free Books, Movies, and More!
You can save up to thousands of dollars annually by checking out books, audiobooks, graphic novels and comics, DVDs, CDs, Blu-Rays, magazines, and even a telescope all for free.
2. Access Free Materials from Home!
Can’t make it to the library? No problem! Download apps like Hoopla and Libby to instantly stream movies, TV shows, and music and check out ebooks and audiobooks without any late fees. Hoopla is like Netflix, Audible, and Kindle/Nook combined. There’s never a wait list, and the materials check back in automatically. Libby offers ebooks and audiobooks and is simple to use. Both apps can be used on a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
3. Free Access to Other St. Louis Libraries
Every library is unique. In St. Louis, we’re fortunate to have multiple library systems, including St. Louis Public Library, St. Louis County Library, and the Municipal Library Consortium. Rock Hill is a part of the Municipal Library Consortium or MLC. Your Rock Hill library card works at all 9 MLC libraries: Bentwood, Ferguson, Kirkwood, Maplewood, Richmond Heights, Rock Hill, University City, Valley Park, and Webster Groves! Return any materials checked out from these libraries to any location.
4. Free Career, Language, Literacy, and Education Resources
Access our online databases in the library and at home using your card. Maybe you’re studying for the GED, SAT, or ACT or learning Spanish. Maybe you want to polish your resume and pick up some interviewing tips. Or maybe you’ve got a tough research paper and need somewhere to turn. We’ve got great databases like Learning Express Library, Explora (for all ages), Ebscohost and more.
