September is Library Card Sign-up Month, and we are celebrating with these two special events!

Over 42,000 Newton residents have library cards! We’re so proud to have so many active library card holders visiting and taking advantage of all the different resources available through the Library.

But is there someone in your life – maybe a friend, neighbor or family member – that DOESN’T have a library card? Don’t panic, we’re here to help! This month is Library Card Sign Up month – the perfect time to double check and make sure the people in your life aren’t missing out on what the Newton Free Library has to offer.

Encourage them to sign up and when they open a library account at the Circulation or Children’s Desk they’ll have a chance to spin our prize wheel to win an item from our goody bin, a book sale coupon, or an entry for our grand prize raffle.

  1. Open a library account this month and spin the wheel for a prize! Win an item from our prize bin, a book sale coupon, or an entry in our grand prize raffle. Encourage your family members, friends, and neighbors to come in to sign up for a card also, so they can spin the wheel, too!
  2. We are also offering Behind the Scenes Library Tours throughout September. Register for an afternoon or evening tour that will:
    • Show you where and how we process new materials
    • Introduce you to some of our talented staff members that help make the library such a special part of the community
    • Get you up close to the sorter machine
    • Fill you in on some of the little-known details of our wonderful library
    • Register for the dates here: Wed 9/6 at 3-4pm; Wed 9/13 at 7-8pm; Fri 9/22 at 3-4pm
