News & Announcements

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month

The best back-to-school tool that is easy to get.

September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month and the San Antonio Public Library is joining with the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries nationwide for Library Card Sign-up Month, to encourage parents, caregivers and students to obtain a free library card that will save them money while reaping rewards in academic achievement and lifelong learning.
Whether it’s providing free access to virtual tutors through our Homework Help, testing practice with Learning Express, research options through databases or one-on-one held with Ask a Librarian, a library card is one of the most cost-effective back-to-school supplies. Resources at the San Antonio Public Library are available to anyone with a library card.
Libraries play an important role in the education and development of children. Studies show children who are read to in the home and who use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
This year, Disney’s the Incredibles are Library Card Sign-up Month honorary chairs, helping to promote the value of a library card and bring attention to the many ways libraries and librarians transform lives and communities through education.
The San Antonio Public Library makes it easy for the community to sign up or renew a library card. You can get a card in person by stopping by any branch location. And, for those who want instant limited library access, online pre-registration allows you to sign up and gives you 30 days to present your photo ID, proof of current address and pick up your library card.
Since 1987, Library Card Sign-up Month has been held each September to mark the beginning of the school year. During the month, the ALA and libraries unite together in a national effort to ensure every child signs up for their own library card. For more information about how to sign up for a library card, please visit your local San Antonio Public Library branch in person or online at mysapl.org, or call 210-207-2500.
