September is National Library Card Sign-up Month


Mayor Prussing is proclaiming that September is Library Card Sign-Up Month in Urbana. If you are reading this newsletter, you probably already have an Urbana Free Library card. We need your help in getting others the cards they are paying taxes for. 

We would love to sign them up for a card at Read at the Market on September 5, from 8:00 a.m. to noon at the City of Urbana's Market at the Square.

Children’s Services Library staff will be visiting different locations in September for on-site library card sign-up and we would love to visit you and your group, too. Email us at or call us 217-367-4069 so we can make arrangements.

There are so many things you can do with your card in person and online – please come in or visit us at to learn more.

Success starts at your public library – in person and online – and we hope to see you here soon!

Celeste Choate, Executive Director
