September is Library Card Sign-up Month, a time when the Chandler Public Library joins with the American Library Association and public libraries nationwide to remind the community of the importance of having a library card and all the benefits that go along with it.
There is no excuse to not have a library card. If you are a Gangplanker and you don’t have one yet, fix it this month. :)
Make use of your library and read for free. Modern public libraries offer a variety of resources and services to library cardholders; many of them online and electronic, such as e-books, e-magazines, music downloads, and numerous online databases and educational resources. The libraries often host family storytimes, computer classes, resume workshops, seminars, cultural events, and more.
Library cards are available in person at each of the four Chandler Public Libraries serving the community:
- Basha Library, 5990 S. Val Vista Drive
- Hamilton Library, 3700 S. Arizona Avenue
- Sunset Library, 4930 W. Ray Road
- Downtown Library, 22 S. Delaware Street
Nearly 222,000 library cards are possessed by people with Chandler addresses, and more than 60,000 of those cards were used in the past year.
For more information on how to sign up for a library card visit www.chandlerlibrary.org.
If you work out of Gangplank Chandler you qualify for a Chandler Library card.
