With school starting up again, the County Library wants to remind Salt Lake County residents that, with a County Library card, they can freely access millions of resources, materials and online learning tools – to include homework help and live tutoring.
Getting a County Library Card is easy and now is a great time to do it because September is National Library Card Month. Salt Lake County residents are invited to stop by any County Library with a photo ID (various forms are accepted) and proof of address to sign-up for a Library Card; pre-registration may be completed online. Parents or caregivers with concerns about fines and fees that their children and teens may incur, due to lost or late returns, are encouraged to consider the Student Library Card. Student Library Cards are a great option for young readers, ages 8-17. With the Student Card, young library users may check out up to three (3) items without accruing fines or fees; use the public computers; download eBooks, music, movies, shows and other online content; and have access to thousands of online learning tools, courses and tutorials.
A County library card provides endless opportunities for family engagement and is your ticket to free educational resources and activities that bring families and communities together. Additionally, libraries promote early literacy, lifelong learning, and have the ability to transform lives.
Card holders have access to a variety of free services, including digital workshops for all-ages; STEAM programs/activities; book clubs; family storytimes; and more.
We’ve compiled a checklist of back-to-school essentials (attached) for students of all ages and abilities and look forward to connecting every Salt Lake County resident with the best taxpayer return on investment: a County Library Card.
