Super Card! Get It! Use It! Win Prizes!


Super_Card_GraphicNot only is a library card one of the most valuable cards in your wallet, it can unleash super powers. Accessing 200,000 books and a half million downloadables, borrowing a telescope or GoPro camera, getting help with your homework, researching information beyond the Internet and even finding a quiet spot to curl up with a book are just a few of the powers of a Library card! 

Unleash the powers of the super card during September, (Library Card Signup Month) and you can win! A library card is free to all Park Ridge residents and business owners. If you don’t have one, get one! It only takes a few minutes to apply either online or in person. All you need is proof of Park Ridge residency. Get a card for your kids as well. Perhaps your Library card won’t enable you to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but it can give you the information and the inspiration to try. 

Come in weekly to be eligible to win!
