Library Card Sign-up Month

September is Library Card Sign-up Month

Buckaroos and Buckarettes: Is your wallet looking run-down and tired? Pep it up with a new library card! During September’s Library Card Sign-up Month, we will replace your old, worn-out cards with nice, new ones for free! (The usual fee is $2.)

Also any child getting their first library card will receive a library card holder and a special sticker. So hurry down to your library for your new card!

Come in to fill out an application, or click HERE.

Beyond borrowing books, DVDs and CDs; the many benefits of library membership include access to online resources and classes, ebooks and downloadable magazines, discounted or free passes to many local museums and the assistance of our librarians and staff.

To get a SAILS library card, come to the library with identification that contains your current name and address. Barring any problems, you can get your library card in a matter of minutes. Children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by a parent and must have their application signed by a parent or guardian.

Your personal SAILS library card is good at 73 libraries and branches in 40 communities throughout Southeastern Massachusetts.

Please be sure to bring your library card with you each time you visit the library.

We seek to provide these services to all segments of the community, and to all age groups. Our collection will reflect the wants and needs of the whole community, and we will make available, as best we can, material in many formats and reflecting many points of view. The Trustees and staff are committed to intellectual freedom, and support the Library Bill of Rights.
