September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and Berks County Public Libraries will be joining libraries nationwide to remind everyone that signing up for a library card opens doors to creativity, curiosity, and learning.
Libraries play a crucial role in their communities, offering a variety of programs to spark imagination and stimulate an interest in reading and learning. Berks County Public Libraries offer an expansive collection of materials and resources which are free to borrow and access with a library card.
“A library card is the gateway to opportunities,” said Amy Resh, system administrator for the Berks County Public Library System. “Today’s libraries offer so much more to their patrons and communities than what was available 15-20 years ago. Take some time to visit your local library this September. You might be surprised at what you find.”
In addition to the nearly one-million items available in the shared countywide collection, library card holders can borrow electronic books and audiobooks from the digital library branch and utilize services such as Ancestry.com for free.
