Library Card Sign-up Month


Every year in September, libraries across the nation celebrate Library Card Sign-up Month! Here’s what the Delaware City Library is doing this year to celebrate:

  • Sign up for a library card and be entered into a raffle to win a $100 Amazon gift card!
  • Take a selfie with your library card and post it on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #cardedatDCL to be entered to win a library swag bag!
  • All kids and teens through age 17 who show their library card this month get a free pack of astronaut ice cream in honor of Buzz Lightyear, one of the Honorary Chairs of Library Card Sign-up Month this year (limit one per person).
  • Already have a card? Refer a friend or family member to sign up for a library card and you’ll be entered to win a $50 Amazon gift card!
  • Have a card but haven’t used it in a while because of fines? Come by with your library card or valid photo ID and get all pre-existing overdue fees waived during the month of September. Only overdue fees will be waived; any fees for lost or damaged items are not included. Use your card for a chance to win the $100 Amazon gift card.
  • FREE replacement cards will be issued for lost, stolen, or inactive cards. Limit 1 replacement per account.

Happy Library Card Sign-up Month!
