Library Card Sign Up Month

September 1 -- September 30


September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.  It’s a time when the Amityville Public Library endeavors to remind our community that having a library card is a really good thing!  Possessing a library card opens up your world to all of our free and plentiful resources, and a myriad of programs and activities too!

For 2 hours of community service credits, create a persuasive flyer or sign highlighting a great reason to apply for a library card.  Send all completed projects to YA@amityville publiclibrary.org with “Library Card” in the subject and your name & grade in the body of the email.
