Did you know September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month? It is. Snoopy said so.
There’s a good chance that if you’re here—on Mentor Public Library’s website—you already know how valuable your library card is. But if you ever need to convince somebody, here are five of the reasons you should have a MPL card.
Your library card gives you free access to Gale Courses and its hundreds of online classes. They offer classes on everything from music to technology to accounting, many of which are taught by college professors.
They can be especially helpful if you’re looking for ways to make yourself more employable.
We have databases that can help you with all of those, and those are just three of the dozens of databases you can access for free with your Mentor Public Library card.
We haven’t even mentioned books yet!
If you have a computer, smart phone, or tablet, then your library card gives you access to thousands of eBooks, audiobooks, graphic novels and even digital editions of magazines.
And you can get them 24/7—anywhere you have Internet access.
Finally, we still have more than 200,000 books, videos, albums, and video games in our collection if you feel like picking something up at one of our branches.
And we haven’t even mentioned all of our programs and story times! You don’t need a library card to attend them, but we’d never leave them off a list of library resources. Check out our event calendar, and you’ll find all kinds of programs for you and your family.
And they’re all free.
All of that with one small card—if you don’t have one, get your Mentor Public Library card now.
