Burlington County Library celebrates library card sign-up month

Limited-edition card available at any eight branch locations

In a time when it seems commonplace to have an arsenal of streaming subscriptions, memberships and cards to carry, we’re highlighting the most powerful card in your collection and offering an upgrade.

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and we’re celebrating with a limited-edition card featuring Baby Yoda from the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian.” Visit any of our eight branch locations in Westampton, Bordentown, Cinnaminson, Evesham, Maple Shade, Pemberton, Pinelands or Riverton and take home your own little, green reading buddy!

Whether you’re a first-time visitor or just looking to upgrade your card, all you need to do is visit your local branch of the BCLS. Our staff will be happy to get you set up in minutes. The only way to take part in this offer is by visiting one of our library locations, but you can still sign up for a library membership no matter where you are.

Each cardholder can check out up to 35 items, including books, movies, music and more. Once you have a card, even checked-out items are within your reach. Simply place a hold on any item and when it gets returned, we’ll reserve it just for you. Fill out our online form to start using the online library immediately. And here’s a cool back-to-school tip – teachers and media specialists employed in Burlington County are also welcome to apply.

Too busy to visit the library? Once you activate your card, we’ve got you covered on the digital front as well with our vast collection of ebooks, audio e-books and streaming videos and online resources, like Pronunciator.

Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter, and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister, author and educator Cara Mentzel will serve as honorary chairs of Library Card Sign-Up Month 2022. The duo recently released their very own children’s book about a mouse that loves to sing. “Loud Mouse” will be available to borrow later this month.

As honorary chairs, Idina and Cara will remind everyone that one of the best places to find your voice is at the library. And during Library Card Sign-Up Month, they want you to explore all the library has to offer, like new children’s books, access to technology and educational programming.
