September is Library Card Month. Do you have one? If you don’t, look up what you need for a library card (usually utility bill or driver’s license that shows your address), then head on over to get this free card that opens up a treasure trove of in-person and online resources.
Picture books, chapter books, read-along books, magazines, and audiobooks are all some of the amazing books you can borrow.
Listen to audiobooks
With the free Libby and the free Hoopla app, you can borrow audiobooks, which are great for listening during road trips or commutes, without even leaving your home. You can also borrow CDs and Playaways.
With the free Hoopla app, you can borrow movies for a month without leaving your home. Hoopla’s a great resource for audiobooks and music.
You can borrow adventure through the libraries within the Bridges Public Library, which serve Waukesha and Jefferson counties, have ukuleles, kayaks, snowshoes, cake pans, LCD projectors (great for outdoor movies), and yard games that you can borrow for free with your library card.
Many public libraries participate in this program to encourage families to read to and with their children. Some libraries, like the New Berlin Public Library, decorate their walls with the names of the participants as a visual reminder of all of the amazing books they have read.
Introduce your child to books, ebooks, audiobooks, and adventure by signing up for a library card.
