National Library Card Sign-Up Month, 2022

There’s no better time to discover all of the benefits of a library card. Today’s libraries are so much more than just books. A library encourages lifelong learning, from resources and services to help people pursue their passions, to providing students the tools needed to succeed in school and beyond. Your library card gives you access to an array of eBooks, audiobooks, online classes, homework help, documentaries and so much more. This September, the Library is excited to celebrate National Library Card Sign-up Month with this year's honorary chairs Tony Award-winning performer, actress, singer-songwriter and philanthropist Idina Menzel and her sister author and educator Cara Menzel. Also, in September, the sisters’ debut picture book, Loud Mouse, about a little mouse named Dee who loves to sing very loudly, will be released by Disney Hyperion.

We are joining Idina and Cara to remind everyone that the library is one of the best places to find your voice. During Library Card Sign-Up Month, please come and explore all the Library has to offer, like-new children’s books, access to technology and educational programming.

It’s easy to get your St. Charles Public Library card. Stop by the Library and request one in person, or if you are a resident in the Library district, you can obtain a card online by clicking here. Visit our website at to learn more or to start the online process. To recognize National Library Card Sign-Up Month, the Library has fun giveaways, events and more planned all month long.
