September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, and the Laconia Public Library is celebrating! We would like to invite all who are eligible to come in and sign up for a library card, or to renew the one they already have. The Library has so many offerings, including books in regular and large print, audiobooks, graphic novels for all ages, music, movies, video games, a telescope, and two museum passes, all free for cardholders. That’s not to mention our great downloadable resources from Libby and Hoopla. There is truly something for everyone. The Library hosts book clubs, craft programs, technology help, lectures and presentations, music and dancing for toddlers, and our always popular storytimes. Visit our beautiful building, and check out our new toys in the children’s room. Use our Wi-Fi, or our computers and printer, read the newspaper, or just find a comfortable spot to browse our book collections. While you’re here, visit the rotating exhibit in our upstairs gallery.
If you live, own property, go to school, or work in Laconia then you’re eligible for a free card. There are no age restrictions, we just need to see proof of residency, school, or employment. And during September, if you’ve never had a library card before, we’re hosting a raffle for all brand-new cardholders to be entered to win a Kindle Fire HD 10 for signing up. We’re competing in the Granite State Library Card Challenge with other participating libraries to see who can sign up the most new library cards. Help us win by signing up for a card today!
