Library Card Sign-Up Month
The month of September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. Everyone who signs up for a new library card will get their picture taken with their new card. Also, anyone getting a card in September will have their name entered in a drawing for a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant of their choice.
Getting a Milford Public Library card is very simple. Do you live or own property in Van Buren or East Jefferson township? If you do, just bring in a photo ID with the address of your property on it and we will register you as a new patron.
Anyone who attends or works in Wawasee School Corporation may also get a card. Please bring your school ID or proof you are staff/teacher to the adult circulation desk to register for your card.
There are many benefits to having a library card. Many popular authors have books coming out in the next few weeks and the library will be purchasing these titles: The Casual Vacancy, by J.K. Rowling; The Racketeer, by John Grisham; Low Pressure, by Sandra Brown and Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot, by Bill O’Reilly. New DVDs coming soon are Snow White and the Huntsman and Marvel’s The Avengers.
Pink’s new CD, The Truth About Love, and Matchbox Twenty’s latest, North, are all good reasons to visit the library regularly.
Your library card can be used at any Indiana Evergreen library, which includes 100 libraries in our state. Come in and get the smartest card you can carry in your wallet: a Milford Public Library card.
