September is Library Card Sign-Up Month. Menomonee Falls Public Library is joining the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide to remind everyone of the world of possibilities that a library card provides.
Many know that a library card can get you books, movies, and computer access at the library. However, there are so many other things you can get with your library card.
- Online classes: Free, six-week, instructor-led courses available through Gale Courses.
- eBooks and more: Download eBooks, digital audiobooks, and movies through Wisconsin’s Digital Library.
- Digital magazines: More than 90 magazines, anytime, anywhere.
- Online access to Consumer Reports: Use their reviews and ratings to make smart purchases.
- Items from other libraries in our system: Your card is good at every public library in Waukesha and Jefferson counties. Most items can even be delivered to Menomonee Falls.
- Items from other Wisconsin libraries: Can’t find an item in our catalog? We may be able to get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.
- Wi-Fi Hotspots: Our hotspots provide unlimited data for up to 10 devices.
- Kill-a-Watt meters: Calculate your electricity usage and the cost of household appliances.
- Passes to area attractions: Coming soon! Visit some family favorites for free.
Your library card provides even more value this September with our Show Us Your Library Card Menomonee Falls campaign.
