September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month!  If you've never had a library card, now is the time to get one. 

A library card is one of the most important back-to-school supplies you can have.  With a library card you can:
  • use computers in the library
  • borrow books, movies, music, magazines, playaways and more from the library
  • check out eBooks from the E-Zone or 3M Cloud libraries
  • access Encyclopedia Britannica online from home
  • access databases such as Student Research Center and Kids Search
  • borrow museum passes for places like the Roger Williams Park Zoo and the Newport Art Museum
  • and much more!
Library cards are free if you have never had one in Rhode Island before and just $1 if you need to replace your card.  Children under 17 must have the application form signed by a parent or guardian.

Visit our website for more information about getting an Ocean State Library Card from the Newport Public Library and start the new school year off right!
