Library Card Sign-up Month
Library Card Sign-up

What’s cooler than being cool? Having a County Library Card!

September is Library Card Sign Up Month and we are inviting all Salt Lake County residents to stop by and sign up for a County Library card. Already have a card? Invite your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers to sign-up for the best taxpayer return on investment.

Worried your kids may accrue too many fines and fees? Consider signing them up for a Student Library Card – a card that allows them to check out three items (maximum) at a time and does not accrue fees and fines. The Student Library Card is available to Library users ages 8-17.

For more information and to sign-up, stop by your neighborhood County Library today. You may also pre-register online.
