September is Library Card Sign Up Month

With the new school year underway, now is the perfect time to check your wallet, purse or backpack to make sure you have the most important school supply item of all: your Iowa City Public Library Card!

September is Library Card Sign Up Month. If you don’t have a Library Card, now is the time to get one. Use your Library Card to check out books, movies, videogames, framed art, laptop computers, and music; access databases; explore the Library’s digital collection, including eBooks and audio books, and digital magazines; and get connected to the Library’s on-site public computer stations.

Cards are available for Iowa residents of any age. Pre-apply online at or complete the entire process in person at the first floor Help Desk whenever the Library is open. A photo ID and Iowa address verification are required for both options.

All new Library Card holders will receive a free ICPL drawstring book bag, while supplies last. If you’ve lost your card, we’ll replace it for free all month long!

For more information, visit or call the Library at 319-356-5200.
