September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and Escondido Public Library encourages everyone, especially students, to own a card. Library cards are free and easy to obtain in-person at the Library or online at library.escondido.org/librarycard.
Owning a library card opens the door to a world of free resources and services, making a library card the most valuable card in your wallet. Use your card to download eBooks, eAudiobooks, or eMagazines; borrow the latest bestseller or popular DVD; or use a public computer or laptop.
Many online electronic resources can be accessed on the library’s website by simply inputting your Library account number. Use your card to explore family history on Ancesty.com, access an online encyclopedia, do research, or learn about an automotive repair for your vehicle. To see just how valuable your library card is, visit library.escondido.org/value and enter your usage into the value calculator.
This September, Escondido Public Library introduces Read Local, Shop Local! offering library cardholders even greater value. Show your Escondido Public Library card at participating Escondido businesses and receive a special merchant discount or offer. Visit library.escondido.org/local for complete details on this program and a list of participating businesses. Share your experience about the endless possibilities that your Library card provides using #LocalEsco.
All Library programs and services are free to the public. Escondido Public Library is located at 239 South Kalmia St. in downtown Escondido.
