September is National Library Card Sign Up Month! The American Library Association and libraries across the country are helping community members sign up for new library cards and welcoming back former patrons to update cards they haven’t used in a while.

Appleton, Kaukauna, Kimberly, and Little Chute libraries unite the four communities in this effort! Businesses across the Fox Cities have special offers that people can access by presenting their Infosoup library card. Join us in celebrating all of the ways libraries impact your community! Visit this incredible list of participating businesses to learn more about their offers and thank them for supporting your local library! 

 We are inviting community members to use social media to tell us how libraries impact their lives, sharing what they access with their library card. We know Libraries Build Creativity, Inspiration, Business and so much more! What do Libraries Build for you? Use this hashtag to be entered in a drawing. #librariesbuildfoxcities
