September is National Library Card Signup month and the Palatine Public Library District will celebrate with giveaways and contests for current and first-time cardholders. Visit any location during the month of September to get a first-time library card and receive a welcome gift. Current cardholders who use their cards at the library will receive a thank-you gift as well.
Be sure to visit the library throughout the month, use your card, and enter the contest for a chance to win a Google Nexus 7 tablet! Entry forms will be available at all locations. Second- and third-place winners will receive a gift card.
"A library card provides an opportunity to do more than just borrow books," said Susan Strunk, library director. "You can use it to borrow movies, attend an event, reserve a meeting space, or gain access to online job hunting tools."

Getting a library card is easy. Just stop by the Main Library located at 700 N. North Court, in Palatine, or one of the branch locations. Provide two forms of identification (including at least one photo ID) showing your current residency within the Palatine Public Library District. Children under 14 need to be accompanied by an adult when applying for a card. The North Hoffman Branch is located in the Willow Recreation Center, 3600 Lexington Drive, Hoffman Estates. The Rand Road Branch is located in the Palatine Opportunity Center, 1585 Rand Road, in Palatine. Once you've got a card, discover all the different ways you can use it at the library.
The Palatine Public Library District is your destination for knowledge, entertainment, and community. It serves approximately 90,000 residents predominantly within the communities of Palatine and Hoffman Estates.
